WINTER WEATHER: Plan. Equip. and Train.

Outdoor work requires proper preparation, especially in severe winter weather conditions.

Employers should, therefore, train workers on the hazards of the job and safety measures to use, such as engineering controls and safe work practices, that will protect workers’ safety and health.
