ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS
Snow, ice, wind, rain & fog all contribute to an increase in the number of accidents both on the roads and around the workplace, with forethought, care and planning these accidents can be avoided.
THINK & CONSIDER
Housekeeping and workplace maintenance, identify all areas used by staff & the public. i.e. carparks, walkways, sloped areas and shaded areas.
Monitor the temperature when temperatures change as prevention is key.
If driving: anticipate & plan – check out the weather forecast.
Poor driving conditions, vehicle maintenance, loading/unloading & sheeting.
Poor lighting and obscured landscape. Reduced levels of natural light and low light can affect vision.
Environment, working or walking outside in exposed places in high wind
Fallen leaves that become wet or have started to decay can create slip risks in two ways, they hide any hazard that may be on the path or they themselves create a slip risk.
Rainwater can become dangerous on concrete surfaces.
Clothing and PPE requirements when working outside and on Site.
We need to be extra vigilant late afternoons and early mornings as these are the most common times for ice to form
