What’s Your Winter Weather Safety Plan?

To maintain productivity and reduce injuries and time off, consider winter safety and create a plan for your facility. A little time spent planning can go a long way.

For your winter weather safety plan, consider things like:

  • Equipment Location: Where are the shovels, snow brooms, salt, wet floor signs? 
  • Employee assignments: Who should stay home? Who will do the following: plow, salt, check for slip mats, inspect areas, escort customers. 
  • Inspections: Will managers inspect footwear?  Will an employee be assigned to check a doorway each hour?  
  • Snow removal plan: Does everyone understand the process before the big storms roll in?
  • Employee Training: Does everyone understand not just the plan, but best practices for staying safe in winter weather?      
  • Communication of Plan Activation: How do we let employees know that we are activating our winter weather plan?

That’s a lot to keep track of! But KPA’s here to help.
