It’s October already. And that means that here in the US, cold weather is on its way once again. Brrr.
And that also means it’s a good idea and a good time to consider how well prepared you and your workforce are for the lower temperatures.
Dealing with the cold weather may seem like something we all know about. But the truth is that people suffer from hypothermia, frostbite, trench foot, and other cold-related problems every year. And it’s almost always avoidable.
So, we’ve pulled together some helpful resources for you about cold stress, frostbite, working in the cold, and generally keeping safe in the cold. They’re drawn from various sources, including OSHA, the Department of Labor, AAA, National Public Radio, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and more. Hopefully you’ll find one or more of these helpful.
Stay safe and stay warm, friend!
And hey, here’s a nice tune to listen to when the temps really begin to drop: Baby, it’s cold outside. I like that version, don’t you?
