The winter months bring on a new set of safety challenges for employers and employees. From slips and falls to driving in inclement weather, organizations must be ready to face these challenges, and pre-plan to address winter safety. This IN PERSON seminar will provide information to help prevent and reduce injuries and incidents during the winter months; from slips, trips and falls, exposure to cold, injuries due to snow removal and winter driving. Winter hazards will be identified and methods to protect employees who may be exposed. 

We will have a group discussion, so please come with the top winter challenge(s) you face at your company, and we’ll brainstorm ways to help address these.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define hypothermia and frostbite and to recognize the signs and symptoms
  • Identify cold weather hazards and controls to help prevent injuries
  • Review workplace hazards faced by employees during the winter season
  • Provide information on safe winter driving
  • Review potential policies that could reduce workplace injuries

Audience:
Employers and employees where job tasks require them to be exposed to winter weather conditions including supervisors, maintenance/operations/facility workers as well as employees who must drive or be out in the elements as part of their job.
