high-quality education and technical assistance.

We are seeking an environment where employees can complete their work day and go home uninjured, as healthy as when they started the work day. To accomplish this, it is essential to increase awareness of the services that the Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health Division of Education and Training offers, to provide FREE safety and health training to more employers and employees and provide FREE confidential safety and health consultation services to facilities and organizations or groups requesting those services.

Winter Is Here!

Outdoor work requires proper preparation, especially in severe winter weather conditions. Although OSHA does not have a specific standard that covers working in cold environments, employers have a responsibility to provide workers with employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards, including winter weather related hazards.

Be prepared for winter weather working conditions by recognizing the hazards; knowing the warning signs and symptoms of cold stress; provide adequate clothing, shelter and breaks for warmth, and train employees.

Please click the link below for information regarding working in cold weather:

Also, you can view our FREE online trainings to learn more.

OSHA has resources to help protect outdoor workers from exposure to extreme cold, injuries during snow removal, slipping on ice and other winter weather hazards.
