Winter road hazards

Winter weather can be unpredictable and dangerous. Getting caught in Manitoba winter storms can be downright deadly if you aren’t prepared.

Black ice awareness

Black ice is transparent, matching the colour of the road, so it’s difficult to detect and harder to react to when driving.

Cold stress

Workers who work in the cold are at risk of cold stress. This weather-related condition can lead to serious injury and death.

Shoveling snow

Shoveling is one of the leading causes of strains and muscle injury throughout the heavy construction industry.

Slips trips and falls on icy surfaces

As the temperature drops, the number of slips and falls rises. No matter how well the snow or ice is removed from parking lots, sidewalks and the jobsite, you will encounter slippery surfaces when walking outside in the winter.
