Getting cold feet?

Before an employee’s fingers or toes are this cold, the discomfort makes it impossible for him to focus on the work at hand. If he is allowed out of the freezer to warm up properly this will take several hours, otherwise his core temperature will continue to fall.

The unnecessary discomfort suffered by cold store workers can be gauged by the following picture, taken locally, where, with great initiative, the unsuitable boots have been bound with bubble wrap in an attempt to keep the wearer warm.

Help! My feet are freezing!

From a genetic angle, African peoples, unlike Caucasians, do not have what is called “the Hunting Reaction”, which keeps supplying warm blood to the hands and feet at regular intervals. They are more susceptible to cold injuries and need extra protection to be productive.

Ensuring that your cold store workers hands and feet are comfortably insulated is easy with our Delf range of boots and gloves
