As lights start going up on the trees and carols start playing, this means two things for most drivers; more people on the roadways, and winter driving is upon us again. When winter first starts, everyone is cautious, gives each other enough space and let other people in when merging. As the season progresses, people become less and less likely to be accommodating and go back to their summer driving habits. There are some things that should be kept in mind while driving during the winter, but one of the most important is to allow more space between you and the car in front of you while driving.
Between Thanksgiving and January 1st, we do an awful lot of travelling, gifting, decorating and socializing. What a lot of us don't think about is how we can maximize the bright sparkling lights of the holiday season while at the same time minimizing several specific hazards that go hand-in-hand with this time of year.
Slip, trip and fall incidents result in some of the most common workplace injuries. The risk of falling outdoors increases in the winter as temperatures drop and ice and snow accumulate across parking lots and driveways.
What do the Holidays mean to you? Do you think about time with your family, time off of work, lots of food and presents, snow falling and carolers caroling? Those are all highlights of the holiday season! What a lot of us don't think about, however, is how we can maximize the bright highlights of the holiday season all while minimizing the potential hazards that go hand-in-hand with this time of year.
