Guide to WORKING SAFELY in WINTER CONDITIONS By Michelle Rae CPCA As winter weather is here for most of us in Canada it is important to know the effects of working outside in cold weather including the risk of cold related injuries This guide includes tips to mitigate cold weather related injuries including how to identify hypothermia proper clothing and emergency procedures Working in cold temperatures At very cold temperatures the most serious concern is the risk of hypothermia or dangerous overcooling of the body Another serious effect of cold exposure is frostbite or freezing of the exposed extremities such as fingers toes nose and ear lobes Hypothermia could be fatal in absence of immediate medical attention The risk of cold injury can be minimized by proper equipment design safe work practices and appropriate clothing Equipment Design For work below the freezing point metal handles and bars should be covered by thermal insulating material Also machines and tools should be designed so that they can be operated without having to remove mittens or gloves Surveillance and Monitoring Every workplace where the temperature may fall below 16 C should be equipped with a suitable thermometer to monitor any DECEMBER 2020 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR 7

further temperature changes For colder workplaces with temperatures below the freezing point the temperature should be monitored at least every four hours For indoor workplaces whenever the rate of air movement exceeds two meters per second five miles per hour it should be recorded every four hours In outdoor workplaces with air temperature below the freezing point both air temperature and wind speed should be recorded Emergency Procedures Procedures for providing first aid and obtaining medical care should be clearly outlined For each shift at least one trained person should be assigned the responsibility of attending to emergencies Education Workers and supervisors involved with work in cold environments should be informed about symptoms of adverse effect exposure to cold proper clothing habits safe work practices physical fitness requirements for work in cold and emergency procedures in case of cold injury While working in cold a buddy system should be used Look out for one another and be alert for the symptoms of hypothermia Clothing Protective clothing is needed for work at or below 4 C Clothing should be selected to suit the temperature weather conditions e g wind speed rain the level and duration of activity and job design These factors are important to consider so that you can regulate the amount of heat and perspiration you generate while working If the work pace is too fast or if the type and amount of clothing are not properly 8 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR DECEMBER 2020 selected excessive sweating may occur The clothing next to body will become wet and the insulation value of the clothing will decrease dramatically This increases the risk for cold injuries Clothing should be worn in multiple layers which provide better protection than a single thick garment The inner layer should provide insulation and be able to wick moisture away from the skin to help keep it dry The additional layers of clothing should provide adequate insulation for the weather conditions under which the work being done For work in wet conditions the outer layer of clothing should be waterproof Almost 50 of body heat is lost through the head A wool knit cap or a liner under a hard hat can reduce excessive heat loss Clothing should be kept clean since dirt fills air cells in fibres of clothing and destroys its insulating ability Clothing must be dry Moisture should be kept off clothes by removing snow prior to entering heated shelters If fine manual dexterity is not required gloves should be used below 4 C for light work and below 7 C for moderate work For work below 17 C mittens should be used Cotton is not recommended It tends to get damp or wet quickly and loses its insulating properties Wool and synthetic fibres on the other hand do retain heat when wet
