Summer work uniform for protecting construction workers from hot and humid weather

The aim of this project is to design anti-heat stress clothing and evaluate its effectiveness on alleviating heat strain. Based on the results of fabric testing and computer simulation, a newly designed uniform was devised with consideration of the heat-moisture performance of fabrics, garment style, and industry-specific requirements. Quantitative assessment inside a climatic chamber manifested that the new uniform was effective in alleviating thermo-physiological and psychological strain during and after exercise. For on-site qualitative assessment, the uniform was considered as cool, dry, and comfortable without impediment of work performance. The new uniform exhibits marked benefits for construction workers.
