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.
