Hard hats, harnesses, face shields, goggles, hearing protection, respiratory gear—you make all the right moves when it comes to protecting your employees from external dangers, but what about internal dangers? Appropriate hydration is essential to preventing mental and physical fatigue, both of which are leading contributors to workplace accidents.
When you work around a blast furnace, you learn just how quickly the body can become dehydrated in extreme temperatures. Add to that the already inherent risk involved in industries like heavy manufacturing, mining and construction and hydration suddenly becomes a high-stakes game.
That's why we've taken a new approach to hydration: Drinkable PPE. There are helmets and hard hats to protect the head, gloves to protect the hands, and special footwear to protect the feet. Why not apply the same logic to protecting the inside of your body? After all, hydration is vital to keeping your body working smoothly.
