How to Work Safely In Cold Weather

2023_02_01 Cold Weather

To prevent injuries and illness as a result of winter weather, it is important to learn about the causes, symptoms, and safety considerations you should take to handle winter’s worst.

If you or a co-worker have any of the following symptoms, get indoors and alert your supervisor or call for medical attention if they do not subside:

  • Uncontrollable shivering
  • Slurred speech
  • Clumsy movements
  • Fatigue
  • Confused behavior
  • White or grayish-yellow area(s) of the skin
  • Skin that feels “waxy”
  • Numbness

Many people suffering from the warning signs of frostbite do not notice because the tissue is numb. Therefore, it is wise for employees to check on each other periodically. Contact us for more information on this important topic.
