- Protect yourself from the cold. In the winter when you are still working outdoors, you should be protected to the cold, as this can lead to illness and even death. You should make sure that you have more than enough layers, and a change of clothing in case you get wet.
- Work in groups. When working out of a building you are more vulnerable to dangerous people and situations which can cause you harm. make sure that you are always working in a group or at least a pair if you have to work outside as this will be much safer.
- Wear the right equipment. Usually, outside working jobs will be ones where you are doing more physical work, in which case you need to be protected by the correct safety equipment.
