The National Safety Council has released a series of resources that managers can draw upon to keep their workers safe and warm during the winter months. These include:
- Safety talks regarding working in the cold;
- Safety talks about driving in wintery conditions;
- Posters on outdoor work and driving.
Cold weather can be especially dangerous to workers who are potentially exposed to the elements. Over 200 workers were killed in 2021, with hundreds more injured on jobsites.
