Working in Extreme Temperatures

Working in Extreme Temperatures thumbnail

Extreme temperature warnings are in effect – if you’re working outdoors, know the warning signs of cold stress and how to protect yourself.

Employers can help employees and workers adapt by providing:
+ on-site heaters or heated shelter
+ a work/warm-up schedule
+ a flexible pace where workers can take extra breaks if needed
+ as much protection from wind as possible
+ a buddy system so no one works alone
+ adjustment periods before assigning a full work schedule
+ a hazard assessment and education for workers on the hazards of working in the cold

Early warning signs of cold stress include:
+ Feeling cold and shivering
+ Loss of feeling or tingling in fingers and toes
+ Trouble moving fingers, hands and toes (trouble doing tasks)
+ Frost nip (outer layers of skin turn white)
+ “Unusual-umbles”, such as stumbles, mumbles, fumbles and grumbles

Severe cold stress can lead to hypothermia, which can result in death. Worsening symptoms include:
+ Extreme shivering (which eventually stops)
+ Impaired coordination
+ Confusion
+ Frost bite (skin freezes deeply, turning blue or red)
+ Loss of consciousness
