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.
