Dec. 2014 – BELLEVILLE, Ont. – Anyone who works outside on a regular basis knows that at some point you will experience cold and wet weather conditions. These working conditions can threaten your ability to do your job safely, as cold can have negative effects on the body. This is known as cold stress.
