03 Jan Cold Stress
As wind speed increases, heat can leave your body more rapidly
Keep an eye on co-workers for signs of cold stress – hypothermia affects the brain making workers unable to think clearly for themselves.
Wear several layers of clothing to provide better insulation
Keep layers loose so that blood can circulate to the extremities
Always wear a hat or cover you head to reduce the amount of body heat that escapes
Move to a warm location during breaks
Avoid touching cold metal surfaces with bare skin
