The cold weather season can be a particularly hazardous time for employers and employees. This winter, the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) is reminding employers and employees to exercise caution when working in the cold and snow.
"Every employer has a responsibility to provide workers with a place of employment free from recognized hazards," said MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman. "This is especially important during the winter season when workers are more prone to slips, trips and falls. MIOSHA encourages employers to prepare for winter conditions by taking precautions and providing helpful information to their employees on how to avoid injury and illness."
