Preparation and prevention is the key to avoiding cold-related injuries.
As we experience the first major cold spell of the new year, much of the northern portion of our country finds itself in a deep freeze. Today, our immediate concern is for the service techs who are making repairs, in-out-under-around the house in the freezing temperatures. It will be important for #technicians to pay closer attention to changes they experience with their bodies while working in the extremely cold temperatures.
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) offers these essential safety tips for all outdoor workers: https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/topics/coldstress/default.html
Thank you service techs and be safe!
