Injuries in the Workplace During Winter Months

3380056633_fb0964d099_z (1)Driving to work on slippery roads is not the only thing workers have to worry about during winter months. Cold temperatures, snow, sleet, freezing rain and ice increase the risk for several types of work-related injuries.

It is important that employers protect employees by implementing policies that improve safety, but employees also have to understand how to protect themselves from common winter injuries.

When workers have to walk through snow-covered parking lots or use icy sidewalks, they track snow and ice with them. As the snow and ice melt, they leave puddles of water that make hard surfaces slippery.

Unfortunately, accidents do occur. This is especially true in the workplace. That is why employees rely on reliable companies to handle Workers’ compensation injuries. That’s why you should choose AFC Marlborough.
