Working in the cold environment is more dangerous than the same type of work in a warmer climate. All researchers have concluded that the frequency of accidents/versus temperature curves follow the U-shape with the minimum near 20 degrees C. The effects of low temperature can be divided into direct, typically frostbites, and indirect, of which the indirect… CONTINUE READING
