How to survive working in the cold?

Posted Jan 08 2010 12:54pm

In the Netherlands it is winter, like in the rest of Europe too. For this weekend there is a forecast of snow, low temperatures and a strong wind, which will make it feel much colder. If you need to work outside or go there to skate, you should prepare yourself  to prevent health problems.

NIOSH has a comprehensive overview of coldstress with symptoms of hypothermia, frostbite, trench foot and chilblains, their first aid and recommendations for workers and employers. including a lot of interesting additional sources of information.

Stay warm, stay healthy!
