Working in the Cold
Each year, we gradually become accustomed to working in the cold as winter progresses. But are we doing everything we can to minimize long term health effects when engaged in snow removal, or other work, in cold temperatures?
This free webinar examines:
- Short- and long-term health effects of being in a cold environment
- The body’s physiological response to colder temperatures
- Precautions that can reduce the effects of cold on our bodies

To address this, OHCOW has created two new tools to help minimize the effects, through preventive recommendations. Be the first to be able to access these new tools and see how they are used to help prevent occupational illness and injury.
