Staying Warm this winter

The first storms of autumn have arrived, with areas of the UK facing floods and gale force winds. For those working outside for prolonged periods it is even more important to stay warm and dry. Depending on your work environment you are going to require workwear clothing that is both practical and safety conscious so that you are ready for whatever the working day throws at you.

In you work in an office then you may be thinking why do I need to look at this, well you still have to travel to and from work through the winter months’ weather, which can be a through unpleasant especially if you have to worry about the UK public transport system. In this particular area you want to find the right garments which ensure that you maintain a professional appearance on arrival, as well as keeping the elements at bay when you are outside.

When you are working outside you need something that is going to keep you dry, be warm, and still allow you the freedom of movement that you complete your work. You might want to consider synthetic fabrics which have waterproof properties but also provides breathability so preventing the wearer getting too warm and sweating. One example would be the Regatta Dover Jacket. This is simply a must have in your workwear wardrobe, offering great value for money as it combines waterproof and windproof using Hydrafort polyester fabric, as well as plenty of warmth from the antipill symmetry fleece reverse. Along with elasticated cuffs and two zipped pockets this really does tick all the boxes.

If you are working at night, or early or late in the day, then the potential dangers you normally face are only increased in the winter as the daylight hours are reduced and the temperatures drop more than normal, heading down to and past zero, you are going to need to keep warm. Due to the surrounding conditions you will also require the workwear to have high visibility properties so that you can be seen safely while you work.

This is by no means exhaustive, but regardless of your working environment you will find plenty of options on the Brookes website to keep your workforce warm, dry and safe this winter.
