Safety When Weather Changes
As the weather changes, sometimes very quickly, it is important to remember the hazards that you could face. Slips, trips and falls typically increase as the weather changes. These injuries account for more lost wages and time missed than any other injury.
Pay attention to your actions and surroundings:
- Make sure your boots have adequate tread to prevent slips and falls on wet or icy surfaces.
- Take short steps and walk at a slower pace on icy or snow-covered paths.
- Use special care when entering and exiting vehicles or port-o-johns– use them for support and keep your feet firmly on the ground.
Safety has been Tradesmen International’s #1 Core Value since our inception in 1992. While we’re proud to provide all our employees OSHA Training, Tool-Box Talks as well as On-going Safety Communication and Education, we believe that each individual must personally emphasize safe behavior at home, on the road, the jobsite and at all times to ensure their safety and the safety of all those around them.
