How can you protect your office equipment from the elements?
The National Hockey League (NHL) announced Wednesday that players will wear protective gear in order to prevent damage from the “wild weather” during the upcoming World Cup of Hockey in Russia.
The NHL Players’ Association also announced that all players in the league will wear “proper” gloves for the Sochi Games.
The NHL is also requiring players to have a personal protective equipment (PPE) suit to protect them from the cold.
The league’s head of player safety, Scott Emerson, told the Associated Press that the equipment is designed to provide protection against “extreme conditions, like snow, ice and wind, to ensure the players are well-equipped to protect themselves.”
“Players should wear a suit that can be opened in cold weather to protect against the elements,” Emerson said.
“They should wear gloves and a face mask to protect from cold-related injury.
All players should wear protective equipment, including hats and gloves, for the World Cup.”
In addition to players, all other NHL players will also wear a protective suit and protective helmet during the games.
NHL players have had to wear protective helmets since the NHL began testing new gloves in 2008.
The game is scheduled to kick off in Sochi, Russia, on Feb. 7, 2018.
