Winter driving: OSHA rightly points out that driving safety is a key concern in the upcoming winter season, recommending that employers ensure workers are properly trained for driving in wintry conditions. Winter frequently presents other hazards, as well, including carbon monoxide exposure from using generators inside, shoveling snow and clearing roofs, fires, and slips and falls.
The agency’s helpful online page about winter hazards includes guidance for driving, stranded vehicles, snow shoveling and using powered equipment such as snow blowers, preventing slips on snow and ice, working near or repairing downed or damaged power lines, and removing downed trees.
