PPE to Stay Dry and Warm Through Winter

Posted on 25-May-2021 By

Anyone who has spent time on a worksite throughout the winter months knows the importance of staying warm, especially when some or all of your shift is spent outdoors. It’s more than just a question of comfort; prolonged exposure to low temperatures can lead to cold stress, increasing the risk of injuries like cramps and strains.

In extreme circumstances, prolonged low body temperature can lead to frostbite, especially in the hands, fingers, and toes, and other serious conditions that can result in permanent tissue damage.

That’s ...

Why Layering Is the Most Effective Way To Stay Warm During Winter

Posted on 12-Apr-2021 By Admin

With the colder months fast approaching it’s important to keep your body temperature regulated and comfortable as you work in the cooler conditions. Layering is the most effective way to stay warm to prevent you from getting sick and even more serious conditions such as hypothermia. This can occur when your body loses heat faster than it creates heat, causing your body temperature to drop dangerously low. The benefit of layering your clothes is that when your temperature begins to warm up, you can remove layers to cool and regulate your...

The Importance Of Hi-Vis Clothing In Summer

Posted on 23-Dec-2020 By Admin

Hi-vis uniforms are often associated with working in freezing weather conditions when it’s wet or snowing. Once the hot weather hits people often forget about the importance of a high-vis uniform. In certain jobs, workers are exposed to conditions where visibility is extremely difficult. Some of these professions include construction workers, emergency responders, heavy-duty equipment handlers, and security personnel. On sunny days in the peak of Summer, it is equally as important to wear hi-vis clothes. The brightness of the sun on a c...

Always answering the call

Posted on 12-Sep-2018 By admin

As part of Westland Workgear’s commitment to responsiveness and safety, we recently had team training by a fire extinguisher professional.

It’s important to have extinguishers in your workplace, (and we all should), but knowing how to use them is a whole different thing, as we learnt.

We were enormously impressed with how the team came through the drill.

Hopefully they’ll never need to use that knowledge but, if they do, they’ll be like real “fiery’s” just minus the sirens and lights. We&rsq...

Bridge opening – great news

 

The Taramakau Bridge opened officially in late July - great news for travellers and for all of us on the West Coast.

 

It replaces the last road/rail bridge in New Zealand where road traffic and trains shared the same single lane bridge. (Understandably, it was the scene of many accidents and constant traffic delays.) The existing bridge will continue to be used but as a dedicated rail bridge.

 

A new two-lane bridge has been built downstream over the Taramakau River. As part...
