What The Polar Vortex Means For Business
Weather stations say it will fall down to -20º on Wednesday in Chicago. More than 750 flights out of Chicago have been canceled today due to the expected deep freeze. It will also be warmer at the top of Mount Everest. Across the Midwest, it is expected to plunge down to -40º in some areas. Overall, the ‘Polar Vortex’ will leave 80 million Americans in sub-zero temperatures this week.

If employees have to work in the elements, then businesses must consider how low the temperature is and if it is safe for them to be there.

Among the suggestions are frequent breaks to stay warm, staying hydrated, and wearing appropriate layers to prevent cold stress.
