(July 21, 2016) Check out our new Tailboard Safety Tip that addresses how preventing extreme weather injuries are important to your focus on safety. Have a discussion about your department’s safety and risk management processes and when you're done, keep the conversation going on Twitter by using #TailboardSafety.
Depending on what part of the country you live, weather extremes (hot or cold; windy or dry; etc.) are a common cause of emergency responder injuries. Understanding the cause and prevention is important to establishing a safety culture.
Discuss the following:
- Does your safety culture train members in what contributes to extreme weather injuries and how to prevent them?
- If yes, discuss how you are successful.
- If no, how can you develop a procedure to accomplish this?
