With winter comes snow, ice, and extreme temperatures.
With the excessive amount of snow in Calgary, AB the last few days we would like to share some of our company’s tips for practicing work safety!
Although signs of the cold can be obvious, when you are working in extreme temperatures you may not notice them as quickly.
A few things to watch out for:
Prevention for working in extreme temperatures:
When working in extreme temperatures you should expect:
Heaters as an on-site source of heat
Warm-ups as part of a schedule before and after work
Briefings on the hazards of working in the cold and the controls in place for protection
A flexible pace where workers can take extra breaks if needed
Buddy systems so no one is working alone
Adjustment periods before assigning a full work schedule
Wind protection to shield workers from drafts or winds
Our crews work very hard whether it is inside or outside, even in the winter they are outside hauling buckets, bringing material into the home, etc.
How should you drive in the winter weather?
We at Doug Lacey’s Basement Systems take safety seriously, and we wish everyone to be safe while working and driving on the roads in these winter conditions!
