Many people have work schedules that include spending some time outdoors. With winter approaching, it’s never too early to start thinking about safety plans for severe weather. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, slips, trips and falls make up the majority of general accidents. Frank Knapfel, Regional Director of Safety & Health, G4S North America provides some tips for staying safe while working outside in the ice and snow.
“Generally, people who are used to ice and snow are well prepared, but it’s amazing how many times people rush or forget three things: planning, caution and common sense,” said Knapfel. “That’s why these simple tips are a great reminder.”
