working in cold conditions, Manitoba workers can be affected by air
temperature, air movement (wind speed) and humidity (wetness). If you are
working outside in cold conditions, you could be vulnerable to cold stress,
which could result in frostbite or hypothermia if you are not prepared for the
cold environment. These challenges should be counterbalanced by proper
insulation (layered protective clothing), physical activity and controlled
exposure to cold (work/rest schedule).
