Cold Weather Safety for Outdoor Workers: Training Tips and Best Practices - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Program Length: 60 minutes

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid costly OSHA penalties and protect your workers from the harsh winter weather with this webinar.

Outdoor work requires proper preparation in any season, but especially during severe winter weather conditions. Although OSHA does not have a specific standard addressing work in cold environments; employers are required to provide workers with a place of employment free from recognized hazards, including those related to winter weather.

Failure to have a plan and teach employees how to work safely in winter weather increases risk and may lead to costly OSHA penalties.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Develop a plan for keeping outdoor workers safe from illness and injury during the winter season
  • Recognize the causes, types, and symptoms of cold stress and learn ways to prevent them
  • Prevent worker slips, trips, and falls due to increased seasonal risks
  • Identify types of PPE that can protect workers from extreme weather and increase productivity
  • Create a training program to instruct outdoor workers on the hazards of winter weather and safety measures to use
