Winter Driver

Winter and potentially hazardous weather conditions are just around the corner. 

When employers ask their employees to take to the road, precautions should be taken. 

When employees return home, a different set of precautionary actions should be taken for their families.

Some of those precautions are listed below.

Traveling in possible icy or other hazardous road conditions:

  • Bring along blankets and a bright piece of cloth to tie on your antenna if you become stranded.
  • Flashlight with spare batteries.
  • Extra change of clothing to keep dry.
  • Non-perishable foods such as candy bars, canned goods, or high calorie food like Power Bars.
  • A can and waterproof matches (used to melt snow for drinking water).
  • A compass, shovel and sand, tow rope, and jumper cables.
  • Check the latest forecast from NOAA or other dependable weather forecasting service.
  • Check the latest road conditions before you head out into winter weather.
  • Let a relative or close acquaintance know where you are going and when you think you will reach your destination.

At home

  • Have your furnace checked before you need to use it.
  • Seal any windows that you suspect allow cold air into the house with caulking or plastic.
  • Include a home safety kit that includes extra non-perishable food, medicine, and a battery operated radio.
  • Keep a flashlight and extra batteries handy. Keep candles and matches handy for extended periods of electrical loss.
