Cold Weather Alert

The combined effect of cold air and wind speed is expressed as wind-chill temperature. Over the next few days, outdoor wind-chill temperatures are expected to be well below –25C. At these low temperatures, work in outdoor environments can present a significant risk for workers performing such work when appropriate precautions are not taken.
