Introduction to this document

Safety briefing - working in winter conditions

Cold temperatures and extremes of weather introduce risks which can catch businesses unaware. Use our safety briefing to explain to your employees what’s expected of them in such conditions.

Make ready

When wintry weather strikes there’s an increased risk of vehicle accidents, broken bones, disruption to work schedules and damage to property. Whilst plans and preparations can be put in place, employers need to adapt quickly to make the best of a bad situation. Our Safety Briefing - Working in Winter Conditions sets the tone of collaborative working, i.e. one where staff are expected to play their part in keeping themselves and their colleagues safe.

What’s covered?

The briefing begins with a short introduction, after which there are sections describing the “Hazards”, “Risk level”, “Control measures”, and “Key points.”
