Outdoor Work Safety Tips

As an Insurance Agent, I often work with clients to improve their safety programs. We all know that insurance rates are determined by loss experience, and everything we do to maintain a safer workplace will help to keep those rates low. Safe work sites also mean healthy & happy employees.

Now that Summer is here, remind your employees to be wary of excessive exposure to sun, heat stress, & storm hazards.

This link is an excerpt from a safety manual for a landscaping company. Despite some horrific misspellings, the excerpt offers great information about the Environmental Hazards of outdoor work. Feel free to include in your toolbox talks & safety meetings:

The manual was developed by the Farm Safety Association, Inc. in Ontario, Canada. For full copies and further information, please contact them. http://www.farmsafety.ca/. 800-361-8855.
