Abstract

What is the Best Clothing to Prevent Cold and Heat Stress?

An interesting question, “What is the best clothing to control cold and heat stress”? is often posed. Anyone working in cold and hot environment may be at risk of cold and heat stress. Dressing properly is very important factor in preventing heat and cold stress. The type of fabric worn also makes a difference. Thermal insulation and moisture vapour resistance of clothing are two important clothing properties with respect to thermal comfort. The accurate determination of these two clothing properties is crucial in the selection of suitable clothing for different uses, functional clothing design and thermal environmental engineering. Thermal Manikins are the good tools in predicting the suitable clothing for avoiding heat and cold stress.
