Colorado winters can last late into the spring, bringing huge temperature swings, big snow storms, and warm balmy days. The best way to keep your employees safe is to be ready for anything:
- Vehicles: Winter can be hard on vehicles – remind employees to do a standard check of brakes, wipers, and tires. Also stock vehicles with winter emergency equipment, including ice scrapers, a warm blanket, and jumper cables.
- Snow removal: Put a plan in place to clear sidewalks, steps, parking lots, and driveways and keep them free of ice and snow. Make sure you have the manpower, equipment and response time allocated before the snow flies.
- Winter clothing: Preparation is key to understanding what’s needed for the snow and cold. Review your company’s footwear policies and encourage employees to make smart choices in preparing for the cold months.
