A new “Safety Depends on Me” video reminds Postal Service employees to be careful when working outside during the winter.
The “Frostbite” video explains how to prevent damage to your body tissue created by a loss of feeling or pale appearance in the extremities.
Additionally, employees are reminded that hypothermia, which occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can produce it, can be deadly if not treated quickly.
The video includes tips and preventative measures to help employees stay safe.
