Employees of the metallurgy industry and welders are constantly exposed to a hot factors and hot microclimate in working environment. Difficult working conditions associated with expose employees to hot factors occurring in the form of flame, contact heat, convective heat, and splashes of molten metal may consequently lead to extensive body burns and even death. Scientific publications have proven that the temperature of the working environment is an important factor affecting human safety and performance. Improved comfort and safety can be achieved by using properly selected clothing and underwear/undergarment, meeting the requirements for a specific occupational group. In order to obtain information regarding underwear/undergarments usually used under protective clothing as well as to get acquainted with expectations regarding the subject matter, questionnaire surveys were conducted among two professional groups, namely employees of the metallurgy and welders, who are constantly exposed to a hot factors and hot microclimate.
