      The Best Places to Find Construction Jobs After COVID-19

      Construction workers have long been – and continue to be – in high demand in the U.S. And while current employment is still below the peak level of February 2020, the industry continues to grow. Here are the top four best places to find construction jobs in 2022.

      New York: After the lockdown, New York City accounted for more than half of the country’s construction job losses, but it has rebounded since restrictions started lifting. New York City remains one of the number one cities to find construction jobs in the United States.

      California: Cali, especially San Francisco, is one of the best places to work in construction in 2022. It has one of the highest hourly rates for construction workers and the highest vacancies nationwide.

      Houston: Houston has a growing real estate market, making construction workers a highly indemand resource.

      Chicago: The Chicago Metro area also ranks highly as a city where construction work is indemand, and the cost of living compared to one’s salary makes for a comfortable life.

      As a durable workwear brand, Kolossus Workwear’s purpose is invested in the wellbeing of the salt-of-the-earth people who keep the country running: Construction workers. We achieve this by equipping construction workers with workwear that is protective, comfortable, and functional to boot. From coveralls to reflective vests, we’ve got everything you need.

      The Colorful Invention Of Paintball

      The Colorful Invention Of Paintball

      Did You Know That The First Paintball Match Was Inspired By A Bet?

      Paintball was invented in the good ol’ US of A by two men who wanted to settle an argument about whether a city man could outshoot an outdoorsman and hunter.

      A Match To Settle A Bet

      In 1981, a countryman and a city guy had an argument about whether the city man would survive in the woods against someone who had been hunting and fishing his entire life. They saw a paint gun in a catalogue and decided to settle their argument with a good old-fashioned duel – by shooting paint at each other! Ten other men joined in the first free-for-all paintball game.

      It Caught On As A Sport

      After the match (which was won by a forester) was reported in the media, it caught on as a sport that’s now played professionally and recreationally all around the world. Originally created to mark trees for logging, it makes sense that a forester would be most familiar with the paintball gun. It’s now gone on to become an internationally used piece of equipment!

      Paintball pellets can be painful, and the oil-based paint is tough to get out of clothes. That’s why most players use protective clothing, like Kolossus overalls, to play in.

      Protective Clothing Will Keep You Safe

      Kolossus protective clothing is produced to the highest standard to keep you safe from wood dust, chemicals, garden debris, paint, and anything else you use in the process of your DIY. Pull one on over your clothing for easy protection while smashing out a DIY project in the evenings, or wear them on their own.

      Having Fun With Woodwork DIY

      Whether you’re a spring chicken to woodwork or have a wooden thumb, woodwork is a wonderful hobby and way to relax, challenge yourself, and create something tangible that you can use around the house. From sawdust to staining, it’s a messy job, too. A well-sealed workwear coverall will keep the dust out and protect you from getting your clothes damaged, so that you can work without stressing about the mess.

      Are You Busy With A Paint Job?

      Painting your dream home, the rocking horse you just made, or even a bedroom cabinet can be risky. Making a space or item your own is a wonderful part of the home decorating process, but the clean-up is the lesser fun part. Take the stress out of the entire paint job with a pair of workwear coveralls that are made to get full of paint.

      We know how satisfying it is to get stuck into a DIY project. That’s why we want you to do so safely and mess-free with protective clothing that has your back (and front). Check out our workwear coveralls with both long and short sleeves for every DIY project.

      Fun Facts About Welding

      Fun Facts About Welding

      One Of The Most Important Skills For Manufacturing

      Welding is an in-demand skill all over the world! Here’s a bonus fun fact for you: 50% of all products worldwide need to be welded. Here are three facts about welding that you might not have known:

      Space Welding Is Hands-Free:

      In a phenomenon known as cold welding, bare pieces of metal that touch in space become instantly welded together. This is because there’s no atmosphere to keep the metals apart, like there is on Earth.

      The Record for the Fastest Build Ship:

      During WW2, the SS Robert E. Peary was built and welded in a record time of 4 days, 15 hours, and 29 minutes. The record still stands today! The ship itself sailed in both the Atlantic and the Pacific for just over 20 years – so it was a solid job!

      The U.S. Will Need Welders by 2026:

      According to the American Welding Society, there will be a shortage of skilled welders as much of the welding workforce approaches retirement. Welding is one of the highest paying jobs in the U.S. that doesn’t require a college degree, and it will continue to be an in-demand career path long into the future.

      While the world is pivoting towards less industrial jobs, welding has been with us since Egyptian times and looks set to continue. Stay safe out there with our protective workwear for welders available here.

      The Latest Air Filters for Post-COVID Flights

      It’s no secret that COVID-19 changed the way we travel, forever. Airplane powerhouses are more aware than ever of the need for more advanced cabin air filtration, seeing as hundreds of people are breathing the same, recycled oxygen for hours on end. With serious concerns about the coronavirus spreading throughout cabin air, the European Aviation Safety Association (EASA) recently published a safety guidance bulletin. Here are three suggestions every mechanic needs to know:

      #1: Industrial-Grade HEPA Filters

      High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters can be installed in aircrafts, but recirculation fans should “never be stopped”. These circulate cabin air in its entirety in about 2-4 minutes, capturing a minimum of 99.7% of airborne pathogens.

      #2: Avoiding Blocked Vents

      This is crucial when it comes to maximizing air flow and preventing the spread of contamination. It’s recommended that recirculation and fresh air systems be operated to exchange the entire cabin’s air volume ahead of time before passengers board.

      #3: Ending Recirculation Entirely

      While it sounds extreme, if a plane’s re-circulation system doesn’t contribute towards critical functionality in-flight, then the potential to keep SARS-Cov-2 particles stagnant will prevent them from being captured by the aircraft’s filtration system.

      Catching a flight is clearly no longer as simple as, well, catching a flight. Aircraft mechanics have their work cut out for them more than ever before. If you’re one of them, don’t make another move without our short-sleeve coverall. With comfort and breathability guaranteed, you can get the job done with confidence.
