President's Message

October was a great time kicking off our year to continue educating and building the women of NAWIC and the construction industry. We have our committees formed and are ready to start making plans! If you are interested in joining a committee, but were not able to make it to our October meeting, please contact Tiffany Wondrow and she will help get you in contact with the right leader. 

We had 83 women renew this year. This is a great start to get to our goal of 150 people by September of next year. If everyone recruited one person we will reach that goal in no time. If you would like for NAWIC to do a presentation at your office, we would be happy to set that up and talk about the great benefits that NAWIC brings. You can email me at the link below.

Dressing Properly for the Cold

Dressing properly is extremely important to preventing cold stress. When cold environments or temperatures cannot be avoided, the following would help protect workers from cold stress:

  • Wear at least three layers of loose fitting clothing. Layering provides better insulation.
    • An inner layer of wool, silk or synthetic (polypropylene) to keep moisture away from the body. Thermal wear, wool, silk or polypropylene, inner layers of clothing that will hold more body heat than cotton.
    • A middle layer of wool or synthetic to provide insulation even when wet.
    • An outer wind and rain protection layer that allows some ventilation to prevent overheating.
  • Tight clothing reduces blood circulation. Warm blood needs to be circulated to the extremities. Insulated coat/jacket (water resistant if necessary)
  • Knit mask to cover face and mouth (if needed)
  • Hat that will cover your ears as well. A hat will help keep your whole body warmer. Hats reduce the amount of body heat that escapes from your head.
  • Insulated gloves (water resistant if necessary), to protect the hands
  • Insulated and waterproof boots to protect the feet
