Why SERVPRO - Winter Weather Safety Tips
Working in the Elements. How to Stay Safe When Winter Weather Arrives
When the snowing and blowing of cold winter weather arrives our SERVPRO of Jefferson City crew is often called to brave the elements.
Falls along with injuries can be a result of those winter weather elements. Some of the most frequent reported injuries are from slips, trips and falls with injuries involving ice, sleet or snow.
A way to minimize your risk of falling while working outdoors include:
- Taking extra time to plan your steps. Take a route that provides the best footing when it’s snowy and icy.
- Wearing appropriate shoes. Boots with rough or heavy tread are good for walking in the snow
- Watching for black ice. After freezing rain or melting snow, black ice often forms on roadways and sidewalks. Familiarize yourself with black ice conditions and be prepared.
- Walking cautiously once indoors. Entrances can become very slippery from people walking in with snowy shoes.
