In this month’s newsletter we are going to discuss two cold weather hazards: Cold Stress and Slips, Trips and Falls. Cold stress typically comes in three different categories: immersion/trench foot, frostbite, and hypothermia. 

Living in Ohio, cold weather stress and icy conditions may be common and can be dangerous but are preventable.  Before preparing for your workday, check the weather and wear the appropriate clothing.  When evaluating the workplace, look for icy and dangerous conditions and report them as needed.  When working outside be sure to take breaks to keep warm and drink fluids to stay hydrated.  Finally, be able to identify signs of cold stress symptoms for you and your employees and their first aid remedies.
