(Image source: Emerson)Emerson Middle East and Africa, in collaboration with Majid Al Futtaim Properties and Jebel Ali Free Zone, will provide over 1,000 labourers and security staff at World Security in Jabel Ali and Al Zahia with freezer-pack neck coolers to help them work through the extreme UAE heat

According to experts at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the World Meteorological Organization, July 2016 was the world’s hottest month on record. Summer in the UAE is one of the most challenging times of the year for those working outdoors, even with the addition of a mandatory break from 12:30pm to 3:00pm for construction workers. Labourers often encounter temperatures in excess of 40 degrees Celsius. 

Emerson, along with with Majid Al Futtaim Properties and Jebel Ali Free Zone, have designed the neck-cooler packs to keep the wearer cool, but it has allows been designed to not cause obstruction, enabling them to continue with their daily job as normal. 

Once removed from the freezer and wrapped around the neck, the slim-line accessory helps cool the body and reduce its core temperature. Each cold gel pack lasts for approximately one hour under extreme temperatures of 45 degrees Celsius. The high-tech towel around the gel pack is not only soothing, but also absorbs sweat and releases supplementary cooling sensations, which makes workers feel cooler for longer.
