MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
"Winter Safety" Videotape Program shows employees how to plan ahead, look for potential hazards and avoid dangerous situations that occur during the winter holiday season. Over the years employers have discovered that their employees miss more time from work as a result of "off-the-job" accidents than due to injuries experienced on the job. Many of these accidents occur during the Winter holidays, as employees do things that they are not familiar with or haven't done "since last year". Fortunately, most of these accidents can be prevented. The Videotape includes information on Christmas tree selection/ transportation/erection, using "string lights", safe use of extension cords and outlets, fires, fireplaces and chimneys, using candles, fire extinguishers and fire escapes, dressing for cold weather, working in the cold, walking and driving in ice and snow, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.Excerpt:
The change of seasons often sneaks up on us. It seems that one moment we're working under the autumn sunlight, and the next we're watching the next snowfall, or listening to the latest school closings. The onset of winter is also a busy time for everyone. Schedules get crowded. Deadlines creep up on us. Then there are holidays and vacations to prepare for. Amid all this activity we often forget to make room for safety. Of course we should always follow good work practices, but as winter approaches there are additional hazards to look out for.
As soon as you feel that first blast of cold air on your cheeks you'll remember the first step in winter safety: staying warm. Dress for the season wearing different layer of clothing effectively traps your body's heat and insulates you from the cold. Complete your wardrobe with a hat, and a warm pair of gloves or mittens. Cold weather often paves the way to slick winter services which in turn leads to falls. Prevent slipping by picking out shoes and boots with rough treads. Take small steps and watch out for slick spots. Help prevent slipping accidents at home by keeping your driveway and sidewalks clear of snow and ice.
