Frosty Essentials: Navigating the season with Winter Safety Gear

With the onset of the cooler season, now is the ideal time to consider specialised winter safety gear for your team. While lower temperatures demand warmer uniform choices to ensure your team’s comfort on the job, providing them with high-quality workwear and hi vis uniforms significantly boosts safety and productivity throughout the colder months.

Total Image Group explores our top picks for essential winter safety gear and their impact on the comfort, visibility and overall safety of your team.

Insulated Uniforms: Embracing the Aussie Chill

With the autumn-winter chill comes increased wind and rain. Insulated uniforms become necessary to keep the team job-ready. Thermal underlayers as well as fleece-lined jackets and pants are perfect for keeping warmth in. Puffer jackets and vests have seen a trend in popularity as a lightweight option for the colder season. For outdoor or hands-on jobs, it is important to find pieces that provide warmth but do not compromise overall mobility.

High-Visibility Gear: Keeping the Team Safe

Australian winters, especially in places like Sydney are typically characterised by shorter days and longer nights, where visibility can be a challenge. High visibility gear such as garments and accessories in bright colours and reflective tape, is crucial to maintaining your team’s safety. Ensure your reflective uniforms are up to Australian AS/NZS 4602.1:2011 visibility standards and keep your team protected during late-night shifts.

Waterproof and Windproof Outerwear: Shielding Against the Elements

The temperature is not the only aspect to consider when it comes to winter safety gear. Waterproof and windproof outerwear are fundamentals for the season, look for garments that boast features such as adjustable cuffs and hems, sealed seams, and water-resistant coatings. These will ensure that rain or shine, the team is warm, dry, and comfortable.

Insulated Footwear: Comfort, Warmth and Traction

Insulated footwear is essential for keeping employees’ feet warm and dry in the Australian winter. Properly insulated boots are the key to enhancing overall comfort whilst maintaining functionality. Look for features such as a waterproof inner, comfortable insoles, and a durable outsole with good traction, which is important for providing stability and grip on wet or slippery surfaces. For workers who typically work in low-light conditions, reflective elements on the footwear can increase visibility and safety.
