Winter Health and Safety Tips

  • Be sure to use arm clothing and layers when going outside.
    • Hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves.
  • Shoveling/Snow Blowing
    • We don’t want ice to form under the snow if not removed.
    • When shoveling bend your knees and try not to lift too much snow at once.
  • Check heating systems.
    • This is a good time of year to make sure your heating system is up to date and serviced if needed.
  • Keep gasoline tank filled.
    • The roads can be dangerous, and you don’t want to run out of gas in the cold weather.
  • Protect against dry skin weather.
    • It’s the dry season and important we take care of our skin.
      • Oil-based moisturizers are recommended to use in the winter.
