January in Ontario Safety Tips

Here are some safety tips to help you get through January in Ontario. Although it is winter in Canada, so far in Ontario the weather has not been frightful as the old song goes. In fact, the temperature has been quite mild (so far). But don’t let the mildness of Mother nature fool you. There are still many reasons to be careful during winter. As the temperature fluctuates, sidewalks and roadways can melt and then later freeze quickly making for slippery conditions. The potential for slips and falls on the sidewalk, heart attacks while shoveling and for a motor traffic accident on the roadway all rise during winter. There are many other hazards to watch out for. The National Safety Council has you covered for winter driving and other health related issues. Check out their website for lots of tips.
