HSE – Guidance on working in cold and wintry weather

Make sure you protect workers during low temperatures and wintry conditions.

Our guidance offers advice on how to protect workers in low temperatures.


The guidance explains how you can assess the risks to workers and put controls in place to protect them.


Our workplace temperature checklist will help you carry out a basic risk assessment.


Also, with low temperatures and less daylight, winter can make surfaces perilous. As a result, slip and trip accidents increase significantly. Take a look at our online guide to avoiding slips and trips in winter weather.
