Webinar – Safety Tips for Working Outdoors: Keep Employees Safe in Fall & Winter

Join our upcoming one-hour webinar to proactively address safety hazards faced by outdoor employees, even during intermittent exposure to seasonal risks. Fall and winter months mark increased workplace injury risks which can include rain, snow, wind, post-storm cleanup, challenging driving conditions, downed power lines, and fatigue. While OSHA does not have a specific set of guidelines for keeping employees safe during these months, employers still have a responsibility to identify hazards and provide a measure of controls to reduce the risk of injury.
