What Is Frostbite?
Frostbite is an injury to the body that is caused by freezing of the skin and underlying tissues. The lower the temperature, the more quickly frostbite will occur. Frostbite typically affects the extremities, particularly the feet and hands. Amputation may be required in severe cases.
It is critical for workers in cold weather to know “What are the symptoms of frostbite?” and “What can be done for a person suffering from frostbite?” Learn these and many more key safety facts, and comply with OSHA training requirements, through LBA University online Cold Weather Safety Training at https://www.lbagroup.com/lbauniversity/course/cold-weather-safety-training/.
