Health and Safety

Safe Winter Driving
The Office of Environmental Health and Safety recommends that those preparing for winter driving keep a car kit containing the following items:

— a flashlight with extra batteries
— blankets
— a small sack of sand to improve traction under the wheels
— extra clothing such as socks, a cap and gloves
— non-perishable snacks
— a small shovel and broom
— a windshield scraper

To prevent an accident, always maintain at least half a tank of gas, be aware of "black ice" and watch for tire spray from other vehicles to determine if the road is icy or wet. If the road looks wet and water is not spraying from the cars in front, you are probably traveling on an icy road. In addition, always remember that bridges freeze before road surfaces do.

Finally, always clear the snow off the top of your car. Snow flying from the tops of vehicles sometimes results in traffic accidents or damage to other vehicles.

For more safe winter driving tips, contact Louis Alar, occupational safety and health specialist, at 202-319-5789.
