Many people work outdoors, and there’s always the risk of an accident – especially in jobs that involve heavy equipment and dangerous situations, such as construction.
When summer gives way to autumn, conditions worsen. There’s less light, of course, plus it gets colder and wetter.
If you work outdoors, what can you do to reduce the chances of needing the services of an accident solicitor in Warwickshire because of injuries sustained at work?
Top tips for working outside
Follow these tips and you could avoid a great deal of pain and suffering.
Wear the correct footwear. In cold and wet weather, it’s important to wear shoes that have some grip on the soles, so make sure you do. Appropriate footwear could save you from slipping on a wet or icy pavement.
Wear clothing that will cushion you. You will probably want to wear a thick overcoat in winter anyway, and if you do fall, you will be glad of the extra protection.
Don’t wear anything that will stop you from hearing or seeing properly. If you have your hood up, make sure you look even more carefully than usual when crossing the road, and avoid listening to music through headphones if there are hazards around.
Get some sunglasses. This may seem counter-productive, but sunglasses actually make it easier to see during the day in autumn and winter, because they cut out the glare. The sun appears lower in the sky, and you might be working during sunrise and sunset.
