Get winter ready with uvex

Trust uvex to protect you in cold weather conditions with our range of thermal safety products - designed to keep your hands and feet warm and your mind on the job, as well as shielding your eyes from harmful UV rays.

Working in cold weather can be challenging and potentially dangerous as one of the first things affected is your range of motion. As your body prioritises keeping your core warm, it redirects blood away from your limbs, which can hinder flexibility, dexterity, and agility in your hands and feet. This limitation reduces a worker's ability to grip objects, carry loads, or respond to dangerous situations effectively. Choosing the right winter PPE is not just a matter of comfort, but a fundamental aspect of safety and productivity. Neglecting proper protection can lead to cold-related injuries, reduced dexterity, and compromised grip; ultimately impacting your ability to perform tasks effectively. We've got you covered, take a look at our selection of winter PPE.

Eye protection in winter conditions

Eye protection in winter conditions

When it comes to PPE for winter, we often think of thermal footwear and gloves but eye protection tends to get forgotten about. Protective eyewear that is suitable for the weather conditions is essential. Adequate anti-fog protection is particularly important when moving from indoors to outdoors. The combination of snow and sun poses significant health risks for your eyes too, making appropriate tinting equally essential.

Besides the cold, solar radiation is one of the biggest dangers in winter. Most people tend to underestimate the power of the sun during the winter months but UV radiation can damage the eyes when working outdoors. As soon as the sun hits ice and snow, glistening bright light is created and without adequate protection, work becomes practically impossible.

Robust safety footwear for the winter

It’s important for those working outside to look after their feet with appropriate footwear. The culmination of bad weather, uneven terrain and being on your feet all day means that only a hard wearing boot that delivers uncompromising levels of safety and comfort will do. uvex safety boots are specifically designed for demanding environments, with options that contain a fleece lining for extra warmth. All styles deliver optimum shock absorption to help minimise fatigue, combined with anti-slip soles and flexible, water-resistant uppers.

Keep hands warm with uvex thermal gloves

When it comes to selecting the right gloves for winter work, several key factors come into play, such as comfort, fit, and grip. Glove coatings play a crucial role in maintaining a strong grip, and manufacturers are constantly innovating to enhance this feature. A secure grip prevents materials from slipping in the first place, reduces the risk of early fatigue, and minimises the need for overexertion, which can lead to injuries.

When selecting winter hand protection, comfort is a key consideration. Gloves that offer high comfort levels and support freedom of movement are essential. They should provide natural touch dexterity, contour to the hand without restricting movement, and allow workers to perform tasks with ease.
