Tree care businesses commonly use their equipment to help keep roads, parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks clear. People count on them to plow and haul snow and de-ice central areas to keep them safe and accessible. It is hazardous work, but someone has to do it!
Snow and ice removal workers are subject to driving in slippery conditions, exposing them to road hazards. The frigid weather conditions also make workers vulnerable to hypothermia.
Think about what could happen when an employee hits a sheet of ice that sends their vehicle skidding onto the path of another vehicle.
While no one can control the weather, businesses can minimize their tree workers’ risks by making safety a high priority.
