The Jarsh-NIA AC Helmet provides a once-in-a-lifetime chance for construction companies and industrial units to prioritize worker comfort without sacrificing efficiency. The usage of the AC Helmet is not only socially ethical, but it also has business advantages, as studies have shown that excessive temperatures can induce thermal exhaustion and heat stress, which can lead to a decrease in productivity.
