The 2nd Generation of Construction Industry Anti-Heat Stress Uniform is Officially Launched

The Construction Industry Council (“CIC”) has been taking a leading role in fostering a caring and safety culture in the construction industry. Over the years, the CIC partnered with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (“Poly U”), to develop the Anti-Heat Stress Uniform (“AHSU”) with a view to enhancing construction workers' comfort and safety at work. Since September 2019, contractors can purchase the AHSU designed by the PolyU through the CIC’s approved supplier(s). In May 2020, the second generation of AHSU has been officially launched. While the new design still adopts the COOLMAX® fabric and moisture-management textiles made from nano-materials, the safety is enhanced with the extended coverage of retro-reflective strips. We encourage a wider adoption among the industry.
