Winter weather can create various hazards that include slippery surfaces and roads, strong winds and frigid temperatures. These conditions can promote an increase in workplace accidents that include hypothermia, frostbite and falls. However, many of those injuries can be prevented with the right preparation and presence of mind. Prevention techniques are most effective when everyone in the organization makes safety a priority. The following measures can help keep you safe at work during the winter months: * Keep walkways, stairways and other work areas clear of hazards, such as water on floors and snow on sidewalks. * For hazardous areas that cannot be addressed immediately, mark them with temporary signs or barricades to warn others. * If working in a cold climate, wear footwear with heavy treads for increased traction, and make yourself visible to drivers by wearing a bright best or jacket. * Recognize the sings of hypothermia and frostbite. * Determine controls to reduce hazards, such as relocation or removing dangerous environmental factors.
