Providing a safe and healthy work environment for employees should be at the top of the list for you as an employer.
Did you know a common denominator of the top ten most dangerous jobs in the U.S. is working outdoors? In some types of work, danger is a part of the job description but being outdoors on a daily basis lends itself to less obvious risks that still can have potentially deadly threats. The outdoor workplace exposes employees to increased sun exposure, infectious insects and poisonous plants where susceptibility is much higher. Education about these concerns and protection against them are simple safeguards that are encouraged by OSHA.
