They make it possible to get to work in the morning...they make it possible to get home...and we definitely thank all the snow crews that work day & night to make sure the roads are as safe as possible.
Driving these large vehicles though, and dealing with plow equipment, can lead to significant injury risks while on the job.
In a report from North Dakota, a roadside worker who was doing a quick repair job was severely injured after being struck by a passing snowplow. The whiteout conditions, the slippery streets...it made for a very risk work environment, and unfortunately, the worst happened.
It seems here in Des Moines, we get a new a blanket of snow on an hourly basis. With all this snow, it's essential every outdoors worker must be properly trained...and all safety precautions must be taken!
