STUDSON released new accessories for industrial workers to help combat the effects of hot weather and sun. The new accessories were created for industrial workers to help combat the effects of hot weather and sun. For protection against heat stress, STUDSON’s Cooling Helmet Liner with Nape and Cooling Towel will help keep workers cool on the job site, and the new SHK-1 Neck Shade, SHK-1 Sun Brim, and Sentinel Safety Glasses will mitigate sun and UV exposure.

For physical outdoor workers dealing with excessive heat within their respective bodies and heads is mission-critical for maintaining safety and productivity, especially during the warmer months of the year. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 285 construction workers alone died from heat-related causes between 1992 and 2016, making up more than a third of all U.S. occupational deaths from heat exposure on the job.

“For the construction industry and related industrial trades, outdoor work often does not stop when conditions are hot. In fact, in some trades work activity increases during the warmer months on account of lost time due to poor winter conditions like snow and ice,” said Ryan Barnes, founder and CEO, STUDSON. “As temperatures rise, the impacts of heat stress become more acute. That is why STUDSON is introducing more types of cooling accessories to help reduce the physical impacts heat can cause the body while improving comfort on the job. That includes more sun-shielding products, such as safety glasses, sun brims, and neck shades to protect workers from the impacts of direct sunlight and corresponding UV damage.”

  • SHK-1 Neck Shade – The purpose-built, lightweight neck shade easily attaches to a SHK-1 helmet, protecting the neck from harmful UV rays (50+), dust, and debris.
  • SHK-1 Sun Brim – The Sun Brim is designed to quickly slide on and off the helmet shell to provide instant sun protection, featuring protection from UV rays (50+), dust, and debris.
