Milwaukee® Helps Mitigate Heat on the Jobsite with New Cooling Solutions

MILWAUKEE, WI – Milwaukee Tool expands their personal protective equipment (PPE) lineup with a new Cooling category, providing solutions to help heat stress concerns on the jobsite. Including a skull cap, sweat bands for both safety helmets and hard hats, a safety helmet liner and two cooling towels, this new category helps users stay cool while working in sunlight or in non-ventilated areas.

Hazardous heat exposure can occur indoors or outdoors and during any season, putting millions of workers at risk for heat stress. Heat stress occurs when the body cannot effectively cool down, causing the internal body temperature to rise, which can lead to illnesses such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. To build awareness of the hazards of heat stress and how to keep users safe, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched a Heat Emphasis program in April 2022. Using cooling measures, such as Milwaukee’s new Cooling solutions, can help mitigate heat stress from hazardous heat exposure.

The new cooling towels and BOLT™ accessories are quickly activated by running or submerging under water, achieving full absorption in only 30 seconds. When activated, the heat stress solutions wick away moisture and heat for up to four hours of cooling time, providing a natural cooling sensation as the water evaporates. Once dry, users can repeat the activation process.

Milwaukee Tool's new Cooling solutions demonstrate their focus on creating innovative solutions that won't slow users down, helping them STAY SAFE. STAY PRODUCTIVE™.
