Safe Working Conditions

 

Working outside in cold conditions isn’t just uncomfortable, it can be dangerous. There are many effects the cold can take on your body such as frostbite, hypothermia, and numbing. As the weather changes and gets cold, snowy and icy it is important to practice safe working procedures to keep yourself warm, hydrated and safe.

Here are some tips for working outside in the cold this winter:

 

Dress for the Conditions: Wearing layers as well as thermals under your clothes can make all the difference when working outside. These layers should be loose and breathable to avoid discomfort.

 

Leave Early: Roads can be very icy and slippery in the winter, especially in the early mornings. Plan on leaving 10-20 minutes early to give yourself extra time, drive slowly and be aware of road conditions before you leave.

 

Stay Dry: Plan on wearing waterproof coats and boots and bring extra clothes in case your get damp.

 

Stay Hydrated and Nourished:  You can still get dehydrated in winter weather despite the cold. Be sure to eat and stay nourished. Your body needs nutrients in cold temperatures.
