THE Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has delivered thousands of state-of-the-art cooling vests to workers building stadiums for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The cooling vests, which have been designed by UK-based apparel experts TechNiche, reduce a wearer's body temperature by up to 15'b0C. Testing and development over the past year have shown the vests improve a wearer's comfort, concentration and the ability to work efficiently during hot conditions.
Mahmoud Qutub, Executive Director of the SC's Workers' Welfare Department, said:"The cooling vest has the potential to transform the lives of our workers. We have spent two years exploring how best to utilise various cooling products, but many are simply not suitable for Qatar's environment. We want our workers to really benefit from the concept of this technology and, after putting the TechNiche products through rigorous testing, they delivered impressive results."
