Staying Dry When the Weather’s Wet

Posted by Katherine Burlock on

Spring is nearly upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about putting away the warm winter gear and getting into gear that can keep you dry even during a downpour. When you work outside you need gear that can withstand every type of weather, and in Canada – especially in the spring - that means rain and wind.

Why High Visibility Work Wear is a Must for Canadian Winters

Posted by Katherine Burlock on

Even though we’re past the shortest day of the year, Canadian winters are known for their lack of daylight hours, and snow and blustery conditions can further hamper visibility. If you work outside in Canadian winters, you not only need good, warm boots and work clothes, but ones that make you visible to drivers of all types of vehicles – be they your coworkers or people using the road you’re working on. High visibility work wear is designed for low light conditions and dramatically reduces the chance of injury by vehicle strike. Even workers in warehouses can benefit from high...
