Learning how to prepare for work during the winter, protect workers from the cold and other hazards that can cause illnesses, injuries, or fatalities, is essential to maintaining a safe work environment and completing tasks successfully.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has prepared a webpage dedicated to educating workers how to protect themselves during the winter months. Visit the webpage here.
