Improving outdoor worker safety in winter

Winter weather in Pennsylvania can be more than just a temporary inconvenience for outdoor workers. Other than cooler temps, winter also brings with it a slew of potentially risky conditions. For this reason, employers are urged to recognize common winter weather hazards and provide their workers with properly maintained vehicles and the correct personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes appropriate personal fall protection systems for employees regularly working from heights.

The holidays create incentive for worker safety measures

Pennsylvania employers and others throughout the country must protect workers regardless of the tasks that they perform. This is according to a statement released from OSHA. It is timed to coincide with the holiday season, which is among the busiest shopping times of the year. Employees have the right to a safe workplace whether they are employed by the company throughout the year or are just hired for the holidays.
