Unfortunately, not everyone has the option of heading indoors when temperatures drop in New Jersey. This is why businesses that employ outdoor workers are encouraged to take extra steps to ensure safety during winter. Employers should be certain that company vehicles are well-maintained, fall protection systems are set up for tasks involving heights and appropriate personal protective equipment is provided.

Retail employees residing in New Jersey should be aware of safety risks associated with working over the holidays. OSHA, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is taking the initiative to remind employers to take extra steps to focus on protecting retail workers and their pay. The fast-paced shopping environment surrounding the holidays leads to longer workdays and more demanding schedules for retail employees.
