Every day, whether its sunny or cloudy, we are exposed to ultra-violet radiation from the sun. Most of the time we don’t even realize it, considering UV rays are invisible to the eye. However, prolonged exposure to UV rays is harmful to your body. UV rays can burn the skin, causing skin cancer and premature aging. It can also damage the eyes and lead to sight-stealing vision disorders like cataracts or age-related macular degeneration.
This summer, keep yourself and your crew safe by investing in products that will help protect them from the sun’s UV rays.
Hard Hat Shades:
Hard hat shades, like the Occunomix shade, fit over most cap-style hard hats for back of the neck sun protection. This cotton shade also helps to evaporate perspiration.
Going one step further, the Miracool® Hard Hat Pad with Shade protects the neck from the sun’s UV rays, evaporates sweat, and keeps the head cool with its pad insert. This hard hat pad with shade comes with a hook-and-loop fastener and fits in most hard hats.
While in the sun, protect yourself with SUNX SUNSCREEN Lip Balm SPF 30 and SUNX SPF 30 Lotion Foil Packs both contains Aloe Vera & Vitamin E, and are broad spectrum sunscreen products which provide UVA/UVB protection. SunX is FDA rated water and sweat resistant with max allowed duration time of 80 minutes.
