Jan. 21: Hazard Alert Issued on Snowblower Use


The WCB encouraged all snowblower operators, at work and home, to reduce their risk of injury by taking the precautions in its Snowblower Hazard Alert, which was issued after a workplace incident in Dec. 2013 in which a snowblower operator suffered a serious and preventable hand injury. He tried to clear the chute when it got clogged but didn’t turn the power off first.
