0161 427 8388 Construction workers warned to prepare for harsh winter

With recent long range weather forecasts suggesting the UK could be facing the coldest winter for almost a decade, roof systems manufacturer Marley is urging construction workers to get prepared for freezing winter temperatures. Bitterly cold weather, ice and shorter periods of daylight mean there is a much greater risk of accidents on construction sites during the winter months. As well as the risk of slips and falls, prolonged exposure to the cold can cause construction workers to suffer from more colds, bronchitis, asthma, painful joints and fatigue. In extreme cases, workers outside for long periods, without the right protection, could even suffer hypothermia and frostbite. Pete Flynn, health and safety advisor at Marley, explains: “It is important that all construction workers understand the hazards of working in winter and know what precautions to take when cold weather sets in. Builders and sub-contractors must carry out their own thermal risk assessments and take appropriate action to protect their employees.” To help prepare for freezing temperature, Marley is giving away hundreds of winter goodies.
