Snow Shovelling Advice for Digging Out

Need advice on snow shovelling? If you live in Canada with landscapes that look like postcards, chances are you will need to shovel snow once in awhile every winter. Let’s face it; we Canadians have a love/hate relationship with snow. We love to play in it but we hate to shovel it, but shovel it we must.

If you own a snow removal business or employ a janitor/maintenance employee to shovel the walk and parking lot here’s a reminder on how to practice proper shovelling techniques. The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has an excellent article on what you or your employees need to know about digging out safely from all the white stuff. Of course, once you have completed the task of digging out, you probably need to actually drive somewhere. How about refreshing your memory about driving on snow covered roads? Again CCOHS has you covered with some good tips for winter driving.

If on the other hand, you just need help digging yourself out from the piles of work that still needs to be done to get your safety program in tip top condition, check out how IHHR can help. We’ve got you covered!
