By: Work Safe NB

Working outside during winter can be a chilling experience. For
workers, cold weather can be a serious hazard. Construction, trucking,
farming and logging are examples of occupations where the potential
for hypothermia and frostbite exists. There are also safety problems
associated with working in cold environments – ice, snow, burns from
contact with cold metal, slowed reaction time and snow blindness.
