Hi all


how to you control chest hair in hot working environment?

they already wear dust coat, gloves, hairnet and beard net, but some of the staff find it very hot so they dont wear any clothes underneath the dust coat


we have a lot of hairy men(sorry to say that) working in oven baking area for 7-8 hours per shift, what would you guys suggest to have a better control?


many thanks

Hi rainbowtsang731,




Normally control would be by having a adequately designed top to prevent chest hair being exposed.


Kind regards,

Hi rainbowtsang731, 

Coats it self is not mandatory , you can replace it with another hygienic uniform, actually the idea is to have a  protective clothes (as per Tony's comment ), you can for example use sleeved t-shirt with a trouser (both made from good cotton material ) or any other uniform from a material suitable for hot climate , make sure that no buttons or loose items . 

we tried before in different facilities and we received a good feedback , for me I prefer the white colour or the light colours for GMP reasons .


good luck ,
