Surviving Cold Weather

Special points of interest:  VPP Awards

Prolonged exposure to low temperatures, wind and/or moisture can result in coldrelated injury from frostbite and hypothermia. Here are some suggestions on how to keep warm and avoid frostbite and hypothermia.

 Safely Shovel Snow  Surviving Cold Weather

Dress properly - Wear several layers of loose-fitting clothing to insulate your body by trapping warm, dry air inside. Numerous modern, synthetic materials do an excellent job at trapping warm air and resisting dampness. The head and neck lose heat faster than any other part of the body. Your cheeks, ears and nose are the most prone to frostbite. Wear a hat, scarf and turtleneck sweater to protect these areas.

Frostbite: What to look for—The extent of frostbite is difficult to judge until hours after thawing. There are two classifications of frostbite:

8—9

What to do  Get the victim out of the cold and to a warm place immediately.  Remove any constrictive clothing items that could impair circulation.

What Are the Benefits of VPP? The following benefits have been cited by current VPP participants: 

 Reduced workers' compensation costs.  Recognition in the community.

Fewer injuries. VPP participants generally experience from 60 to 80 percent fewer lost workday injuries than would be expected of an "average" site of the same size in their industries.

 Improvement of programs that are already good, through the internal and external review that's part of the VPP application process.

 Improved employee motivation to work safely, leading to better quality and productivity.

No More Backing Blind—Children’s Lives to be Saved by Proposed Regulation Focused on Auto Backovers Leawood, KS - KidsAndCars.org is elated to learn that the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has prescribed the necessary solution to the devastating problem of children being backed over by vehicles and Killed, by proposing a comprehensive rear visibility standard for all passenger vehicles. There hasn’t been an announcement this significant since seatbelts and airbags were added to vehicles. Drivers will no longer be backing up blindly. Automobiles have been manufactured for over 100 years and there has never been a guideline or regulation about what a driver should be able to see when backing their vehicle. The ability to visually detect pedestrians behind vehicles is essential to prevent the thousands of injuries and deaths that occur every year when a vehicle backs up. People literally cannot be seen in the blindzone that exists behind all vehicles. For over 10 years the national nonprofit organization, KidsAndCars.org, has been collecting data about vehicle related non-traffic incidents, which include backovers. KidsAndCars.org has led the initiative to bring the magnitude of these

tragic deaths and injuries to the national agenda. Educating policy makers, government officials and the public about the lack of visibility around vehicles by KidsAndCars.org was imperative for the passage of the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act and today’s DOT announcement that advocates for significant improvements for child and automotive safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is requiring that blind zones behind vehicles be eliminated to reduce the possibility of death and injury resulting from backing incidents, particularly incidents involving small children and the elderly. “Expanding the field of vision for all passenger cars, pickup trucks, and minivans is necessary so drivers can see directly behind the vehicle when backing,” said Janette Fennell, founder and president of KidsAndCars.org. “The quality of rearview camera technology has advanced to the point where you can see if there are leaves on the ground when backing. We have the technology to pre-

Safety Tips for Shoveling Snow These snow shoveling safety tips will keep you from injuring yourself this winter. Snow can be quite heavy. It's easier than you think to injure yourself while shoveling snow. Shoveling snow can be a serious health/safety risk if you have a his-

tory of heart related illness or high blood pressure. If you are a senior citizen or out of shape, you may want to consider asking someone else to do your shoveling for you. Concern for your own safety, limiting your risk for injury is nothing to be ashamed of. Before starting to shovel, warm up your mus-

vent these deaths; and now we are going to use it” she added. In the U.S. at least fifty (50) children are backed over by vehicles EVERY week. Forty-eight are treated in hospital emergency rooms and at least two children are fatality injured every WEEK. In over 70% of backover incidents involving children, it is a direct relative of that child who is the driver of the vehicle. Said another way; the people who love these children the most are suddenly responsible for their death. This issue affects the very youngest of our children, which is an unusually high percentage for any particular type of vehicle crash. KidsAndCars.org data reports that eighty percent (80%) of the fatalities involve children age 3 and under. Forty-three percent (43%) of those children are 1 year-old (12-23 months). Young children are impulsive and unpredictable; still have very poor judgment, and little understanding of danger. In addition, young children do not recognize boundaries such as property lines, sidewalks, driveways or parking spaces. Toddlers establish independent mobility between the ages of 12-23 months, but the concept of personal safety is absent. Backovers are often (Continued on page 4)

cles. Try using the same type of stretching you do before your regular exercise routine. Start slowly, work at a steady pace and take frequent breaks. Shoveling snow rapidly for long periods at a time will increase your risk for injury. Just like any other form of exercise, make sure you stay hydrated. (Continued on page 6)

Surviving Cold Weather (cont’d from pg. 1)  If you notice signs of frostbite, seek medical attention immediately.  Place dry, sterile gauze between toes and fingers to absorb moisture and to keep them from sticking together.  Slightly elevate the affected part to reduce pain and swelling.

from a medical facility and you have warm water, place the frostbitten part in the water (102 to 106 degrees Fahrenheit). If you do not have a thermometer, test the water first to see if it is warm, not hot.  Rewarming usually takes 20 to 40 minutes or until tissues soften.

What not to do  Do not use water hotter than 106 degrees Fahrenheit. Do not use water colder than 100 degrees Fahrenheit since it will not thaw frostbite quickly enough.  Do not rub or massage the frostbite area.  Do not rub with ice or snow.

No More Backing Blind (Cont’d from pg. 3) the predictable consequence of a child following a parent out to the driveway and standing behind the vehicle without the parent’s knowledge. The scenario plays out so frequently that KidsAndCars.org have dubbed this situation as the “bye-bye syndrome.” “We have had the honor of working with some of the most courageous parents in America throughout this entire process” states Janette Fennell. “These phenomenal families have somehow found the strength to tell their unthinkable stories over and over again about how a backover tragedy befell their family. They have worked in honor of their children to ensure that other families do not have to experience the devastating loss of a child when a loving relative was behind the wheel. This is a huge triumph for all American families but especially for those special and rare individuals who chose to channel their grief into policy change” she added. Safety Tips from KidsAndCars.org • Walk around and behind a vehicle prior to moving it. • Know where your kids are. Make

children move away from your vehicle to a place where they are in full view before moving the car and know that another adult is properly supervising children before moving your vehicle. • Teach children that “parked” vehicles might move. Let them know that they can see the vehicle; but the driver might not be able to see them. • Consider installing cross view mirrors, audible collision detectors, rear view video camera and/or some type of back up detection device. • Measure the size of your blind zone (area) behind the vehicle(s) you drive. A 5-foot-1-inch driver in a pickup truck can have a rear blind zone of approximately 8 feet wide by 50 feet long. • Be aware that steep inclines and large SUV’s, vans and trucks add to the difficulty of seeing behind a vehicle. • Hold children’s hand when leaving the vehicle. •Teach your children to never play in, around or behind a vehicle and always set the emergency brake. • Keep toys and other sports equip-

ment off the driveway. • Homeowners should trim landscaping around the driveway to ensure they can see the sidewalk, street and pedestrians clearly when backing out of their driveway. Pedestrians also need to be able to see a vehicle pulling out of the driveway. • Never leave children alone in or around cars; not even for a minute. • Keep vehicles locked at all times; even in the garage or driveway. • Keys and/or remote openers should never be left within reach of children. • Make sure all child passengers have left the car after it is parked. • Be especially careful about keeping children safe in and around cars during busy times, schedule changes and periods of crisis or holidays.

Weather-Related Mishaps …. Yep, it is that time of year, its cold, damp, rainy, windy, snowy, icy, overcast or any combination thereof.

from simple bruises to back strains. Not an auspicious beginning for the New Year.

We’ve already experienced our first real blast of winter and of course, the accompanying, almost inevitable rush of injuries directly related to the weather.

If we all take heed of where we are, no matter the location - administrative or industrial-type spaces; indoors or out; and, move through those spaces accordingly, with full awareness of the conditions surrounding us – chances are we won’t be involved in a mishap.

The combination of snow and ice create treacherous conditions, not only on roadways, in traffic; but on walkways of all types. Slips on icy, snowy walkways or in parking lots take the lead. Resulting injuries include (to date) everything

I know you hear it all the time and it seems to be the most commonly rec-

Driving in Snow and Ice The best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all, if you can avoid it. Don't go out until the snow plows and sanding trucks have had a chance to do their work, and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination. If you must drive in snowy conditions, make sure your car is prepared and that you know how to handle road conditions. It's helpful to practice winter driving techniques in a snowy, open parking lot, so you're familiar with how your car handles. Consult your owner's manual for tips specific

to your vehicle. Driving safely on icy roads

 Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you.  Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock up, ease off the brake.  Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists.  Keep your lights and windshield clean.  Use low gears to keep traction, especially on hills.  Don't use cruise control or overdrive on icy roads.

So, watch your step, Jack Frost is playing the prankster these days.  Be especially careful on bridges, overpasses and infrequently traveled roads, which will freeze first. Even at temperatures above freezing, if the conditions are wet, you might encounter ice in shady areas or on exposed roadways like bridges.  Don't pass snow plows and sanding trucks. The drivers have limited visibility, and you're likely to find the road in front of them worse than the road behind.  Don't assume your vehicle can handle all conditions. Even fourwheel and front-wheel drive vehicles can encounter trouble on winter roads. If your rear wheels skid...

 Take your foot off the accelerator.  Steer in the direction you want the front wheels to go. If your rear wheels are sliding left, steer left. (Continued on page 6)

Driving in Snow and Ice (cont’d from pg. 5) If they're sliding right, steer right.  If your rear wheels start sliding the other way as you recover, ease the steering wheel toward that side. You might have to steer left and right a few times to get your vehicle completely under control.  If you have standard brakes, pump them gently.  If you have anti-lock brakes (ABS), do not pump the brakes. Apply steady pressure to the brakes. You will feel the brakes pulse — this is normal.

 Take your foot off the gas and shift to neutral, but don't try to steer immediately.

 Use a shovel to clear snow away from the wheels and the underside of the car.

 As the wheels skid sideways, they will slow the vehicle and traction will return. As it does, steer in the direction you want to go. Then put the transmission in "drive" or release the clutch, and accelerate gently.

 Pour sand, kitty litter, gravel or salt in the path of the wheels, to help get traction.

If you get stuck...

 Do not spin your wheels. This will only dig you in deeper.

(cont’d from page 3) Avoid drinking caffeinated beverages and energy drinks. These can elevate your heart rate, increasing your risk for heart attack. Choose a small shovel, so you are not lifting as much snow. Snow may appear light and fluffy,

 Try rocking the vehicle. (Check your owner's manual first — it can damage the transmission on some vehicles.) Shift from forward to reverse, and back again. Each time you're in gear, give a light touch on the gas until the vehicle gets going.

 Turn your wheels from side to side a few times to push snow out of the way.

If your front wheels skid...

Shoveling Snow

 Use a light touch on the gas, to ease your car out.

Plastic shovels weigh less than metal and snow is not as likely to stick to them. These factors add less weight to your load. Spray the blade with a lubricant to keep snow from sticking.
