Keep Your Employees Safe This Winter

While some view winter weather as a welcomed excused absence from work or school, others must still find their way into the office. What they don’t want to encounter on their way are slick sidewalks, power outages, or the worst – inching your way through icy gridlock only to learn after they’ve battled the weather that the office is, in fact closed. “Sorry,” simply won’t suffice.

Winter Isn’t Always Pretty

We like to think of the winter scenes we may see on a holiday card – peaceful, joyful, beautiful, and full of cheer. While this may be so, it’s more likely to be chaotic with a few Grinches sprinkled in for good measure. And when it comes to work productivity during the winter months, it can be an even less promising scene.

Winter storms have a history of wreaking havoc on the economy. After a 2015 New England winter storm, economists calculated the hit to the economic output was a staggering $1.25 billion. Much of the productivity loss is attributed to workers simply not being able to get to work due to poor road conditions. Of course, they’ll eventually make up the work over time, but the disruption to normal business operations can’t be understated. Read More

Is Winter That Dangerous?

Sure, spring, summer and even early fall months generally bring us more severe weather, such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and strong thunderstorms, but the winter months can wreak their own havoc. We pulled the following common winter dangers straight from NOAA:

  • Wind – Some winter storms have extremely strong winds that can create blizzard conditions with blinding, wind-driven snow, drifting, and dangerous wind chills. These intense winds can bring down trees and poles, and can also cause damage to homes and other buildings.
  • Snow – Heavy snow accumulations can immobilize a region and paralyze a city, strand motorists, stop the flow of supplies, and disrupt emergency services. Buildings may collapse, and trees and power lines can be destroyed by heavy snow.
  • Ice – Heavy ice accumulations can bring down objects like trees, utility poles and lines, and communication towers. Power can be disrupted or lost for days while utility companies repair the damage.

Emergencies Aren’t Biased

Small companies can fall victim to a dangerous mindset of thinking they are too small to take formal precautions against crises. They believe that fancy emergency notification systems are relegated to the companies with thousands of employees scattered around the globe. While the magnitude of the emergency may scale with the size of the company, even the smallest mom and pop company needs a plan and a system to communicate when an unexpected event occurs.
