Tool hire says contractors should think about installing temporary on-site heaters
Speedy Hire has issued a health warning to construction businesses in regards to the cold weather.
The tool hire company is urging workers to protect themselves from cold related issues, such as white fingers and cold stress. These can cause numbness, reduced grip, stiffness and reduced sensitivity both to touch and pain.
Speedy Hire’s health and safety manager, Mark Turnbull, recommended: “Contractors need to be thinking about installing temporary on-site heaters and providing protective equipment for employees.”
