MARCOM's "Winter Safety" Videotape Program shows employees how to plan ahead, look for potential hazards and avoid dangerous situations that occur during the winter holiday season. Over the years employers have discovered that their employees miss more time from work as a result of "off-the-job" accidents than due to injuries experienced on the job. Many of these accidents occur during the Winter holidays, as employees do things that they are not familiar with or haven't done "since last year". Fortunately, most of these accidents can be prevented. The Videotape includes information on Christmas tree selection/ transportation/erection, using "string lights", safe use of extension cords and outlets, fires, fireplaces and chimneys, using candles, fire extinguishers and fire escapes, dressing for cold weather, working in the cold, walking and driving in ice and snow, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
