Working Safely in Cold Environments

The acronym C.O.L.D. is helpful to remember several tips: Keep your clothing Clean, keep yourself clean and look for signs of frostbite as you work. Avoid Overheating by dressing appropriately, not too much, avoid sweating that can just freeze. Dress in Layers that can be added and removed as needed. Stay Dry, change clothing that gets wet.

Importance of Personal Protective Equipment

Let’s all achieve our main goal when we go to work each morning, going home uninjured. Use your equipment correctly, make sure it is in good repair. Check yourself and check your brothers and sisters.
