Please Take a Moment Today to Make Sure...

Have you ever woke up on a workday and asked yourself, “how will the weather affect my safety this today?”

Probably not – but maybe you should.

Think about it.Rain, sleet, snow, wind and even the temperature can create conditions that are hazardous to health and well-being.

So what’s the temperature today? Is it a beautiful 72 degrees with the sun shining? 20 degrees with a wind chill of -5? 90 degrees with the humidity at 75%?

I hope it’s that beautiful 72 degree day, but odds are it’s not.

So if you are waking up to a sunny 20 degree day with a wind chill of -5, then you may want to consider wearing that winter apparel that will protect you from the cold and frostbite.

If you’re lucky enough to be in one of those warmer sections of the country, but it’s 90 degrees with the humidity at 75%, you’ll need to protect yourself from a heat index that is equal to 106 degrees if you’ll be working outside. Heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke which can lead to very serious consequences – even death.

As for rain, sleet and snow, those can all lead to slippery work and driving conditions which we all know can a negative effect on our safety.

And let’s not forget the wind.There is no question that when Mother Nature decides to let it blow we better all get out of the way and take shelter.But even if we are only looking at 20-30 mile per hour winds we need to keep in mind that even those can create struck by hazards.

There is no question that weather conditions have a direct effect on workplace safety. So please take a moment today to make sure you protect yourself and those working with you from any hazardous weather conditions, no matter how slight they may seem.
