About this Webinar
Did you know: The average lost-time claim due to winter slip and fall injuries at work is $45,000?
Winter is almost here! If your construction or general industry employees work indoors or out, they may be exposed to cold stress. This can lead to thermal discomfort and in some cases even severe injuries, illnesses, or death.
The responsibility rests with leadership to prepare their employees for these dangerous dynamics. But this is NOT your typical webinar on this topic – COVID-19 has introduced another layer of challenges that must addressed.
OECS combines years of safety experience in cold-weather climates, along with Kasey’s medical background, to deliver practical advice on how to navigate the “new normal” of cold weather related risks.
In this webinar, we will help you understand and prepare for:
- The risk factors, how the body reacts to cold conditions, and the wind chill effect
- How the body maintains thermal balance
- The injuries/illnesses caused by exposure to
- Slip/trip/fall techniques for icy conditions
- Special Minnesota OSHA requirements for winter ➢ Carbon monoxide requirements
- COVID-19 in the winter and prevention
