In heat-exposed workplaces, especially during the summer months, high temperatures pose a severe hazard to all employees, which cannot always be reduced or prevented by technical measures (e.g. air conditioning). Personal protective equipment (PPE), such as the Teijin Active Cooling Vest, can significantly reduce the risks of heat stress and possible workplace accidents caused by overheating.
Our Active Cooling Vest is a lightweight, easy-to-use plug and play solution that actively supports the natural cooling of the body. It is a battery-powered garment that actively cools the user by simply reinforcing the body's own cooling mechanism. No preparation or pre-cooling of the vest is necessary. It is an innovative and virtually instant functional textile. Simply by inserting a charged battery, it can support the body's own cooling function for at least six hours without interruption.
The German Social Accident Insurance Institution for the building trade in Germany promotes occupational safety and health protection in companies and at the workplace. The association points out the dangers of high ambient temperatures and simultaneous physical work. Maintaining a normal body (core) temperature helps to prevent heat-related illnesses and accidents, and the wearer's performance is increased. As the statutory accident insurance institution for the construction industry and construction-related services, it looks after more than 3 million insured persons in around 567,000 companies and approx. 58,000 private construction projects. For this reason, the purchase of the Teijin Active Cooling Vest is now directly subsidised by BG BAU. Is your company a member of the BG BAU?
