Managing the risks to working in the cold
Prolonged exposure to cold can result in hypothermia - a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention. The PCBU must manage the risks to your health and safety caused by exposure to cold weather, including:
providing heating, for example truck cab heaters
providing protection, such as a hut or the cabin of a vehicle
providing warm and waterproof clothing, and
enabling workers who are not used to working in cold conditions to acclimatise.
