At present, many thousands of people work in Poland in the conditions of a hot microclimate. Currently there are and will continue to exist in the future, and what is related to the job positions on which it will not be possible to reduce or eliminate the activities of dangerous factors of the hot environment. Therefore, people working in "hot" work stations should be equipped with individual protection measures appropriate for a specific workplace. Currently, researchers strive to produce such clothing and its components to ensure the user's safety. However, protective clothing intended for use in a hot work environment most often to fulfill its functions is made of aluminized materials that do not let water vapor. The article presents and characterizes the currently used protective clothing and its individual elements used in the hot microclimate.
