Over the years employers have discovered that their employees miss more time from work as a result of “off-the-job” accidents than due to injuries experienced on the job. Many of these accidents occur during the winter holidays, as employees do things that they are not familiar with or haven't done “since last year”. Fortunately, most of these accidents can be prevented.
NSC's training products on “Winter Safety” show employees how to plan ahead, look for potential hazards and avoid dangerous situations that occur during the winter holiday season. Topics covered in these products include:
- Surviving in the cold.
- Keeping your workplace safe in icy conditions.
- Dressing for the weather.
- Driving in winter weather.
- Holiday decorations.
- Celebrating the season safely.
