There are situations where workers may be exposed to environments with very low ambient temperatures (below -5°C), which are liable to seriously damage their health.
One way to combat this risk is to wear protective clothing at all times:
EN 342 Cold protection clothing
Directive 89/686/EEC, Annex II, Art. 3.7: Protection against cold
"PPE designed to protect all or part of the body against the effects of cold must possess thermal insulating capacity and mechanical strength appropriate to the foreseeable conditions of use for which it is marketed."
Elis offers a complete range of EN 342 compliant cold protection PPE garments, the main feature of which is their ability to maintain an acceptable body temperature at ambient temperatures below -5°C.
