Preparing for Winter Driving Season

The winter season is just around the corner and with cold wind-chill temperatures comes poor driving conditions. Now is the time to start thinking about preparing your vehicle for the snow filled days ahead. Here are five tips to help get you started:

  1. The first thing on your tune-up list should be an oil change. Subzero temperatures are hard on the engine of a vehicle so it’s important to ensure that the engine is protected with a heavy-duty oil that can outlast the coldest of temperatures.
  2. Winterize your tires. Summer tires aren’t made to handle harsh winter climates and can increase the chance of getting into a collision. Winter tires are built to grip into snowy roads and provide the traction you need to drive on the road safely.
  3. Reboot your cooling system. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your system checked, it might be time to have it flushed, cleaned, and refilled with fresh antifreeze. When you go for your next oil change, have the technician check to see if your coolant system is ready for the winter season.
  4. Test your battery. There’s nothing worse than starting the day off with a car that won’t start. Before winter comes in at full force, make sure to have your battery tested or replaced if necessary.
  5. Prepare an emergency kit. Winter driving conditions can be dangerous and there is a possibility of becoming stuck or stranded for a long period of time. It’s important to be prepared for these situations and to look out for your personal safety. A basic emergency kit should include: food that won’t spoil such as granola bars, water in a stainless steel bottle, blankets, additional clothes, first aid kit, small shovel, and a whistle in case you need to attract attention.

Trick or Treat!

Halloween is a very fun and exciting time for children and their parents. To ensure everyone is safe and happy this Halloween season, we have put together a list of safety tips for children, parents and homeowners!


  • Inform your parents of the route you will be taking. 
  • Cross the street at corners. Use traffic signals and crosswalks!
  • Bring a cell-phone in case of emergency.
  • Travel in groups. Be sure there is atleast three people at all times.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather. If it is damp and cool out, water absorbent clothing will make you very uncomfortable.
  • If you have any allergies, let the person handing out candy know.
  • Avoid criss-crossing back and forth between houses. Complete one full side, cross the street, and then complete the other side.
  • Do not open or eat any treats until you are home. Have your parent’s double check the candy to make sure everything is ok.
  • Never approach a house that is not well lit. Never enter a strangers home.


  • Dress your children appropriately for the weather. Extra layers may be needed as the night gets cooler.
  • It is recommended children 12 and under are accompanied by an adult while trick or treating.
  • Ensure your child’s costume is properly fit to avoid tripping or falling. Items such as oversized shoes, masks, high heels, long dresses and capes should be avoided.
  • Always remove make-up before bed to avoid skin or eye irritations.
  • In advance, discuss the route your child will take if you are not accompanying them. Set a curfew for when you expect them to be home.
  • Always check your child’s candy prior to them opening it.
  • Places strips of reflective tape on the front and back of your child’s costume.


  • Replace burnt out lights, have all outdoor lights on while expecting visitors.
  • Remove any items from your yard and front walkway that could trip someone.
  • Remove any wet leaves from your step and driveways.
  • Remember! Some children may have allergies to the candy you are giving them. Consider having different options such as stickers or other knick knacks.

Preparing For Fall

As of September 22, Saskatchewan’s 2015 summer season is officially over. It is now time to start preparing homes for the fall and winter seasons. Below is a list of maintenance and safety tips in order to keep your home in tip-top shape:

  • Make sure your eaves troughs are properly cleaned. You will want to ensure that all drainage areas are unblocked by leaves and debris.  Installing gutter guards can make this job a lot easier!
  • Inspect and examine your roof for wear and tear. Signs of replacement include curling, buckling or cracking shingles.
  • To prevent exterior water pipes and sprinkles from bursting, blow them out. This can be done by turning off the valves to the exterior hose bibs. Next, you will need to run the water until the pipes are completely empty.
  • Fall is a great time to rake leaves that settle on lawn surfaces. When large leaves are wet, they compact to a point in which they suffocate the grass. This can lead to various disease and insect problems.
  • The raked leaves should be put in a compost pile; however you can use the leaves as mulch. Leaves have an excellent source of nutrients and organic matter. Add them to flower beds for a winter blanket!
  • Carbon monoxide and smoke alarms should be checked each fall. These are very important detectors to have in the home, as they can save lives in the event of an emergency. Carbon dioxide is invisible and odourless and the detector will sound if these levels get to high. Therefore, it is crucial to replace old batteries and ensure these devices are working properly.

Keeping Pets Safe in Hot Weather

Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors with your pets. However, the hot weather outdoors can have serious effects on your pets if the proper safety tips are not implemented. Issues that arise from the heat can include burning their paws, sunburn, heatstroke and dehydration.


Pavement, metal or tar-coated asphalt get extremely hot in the summer months. Humans remember to wear sandals, walk on the grass and avoid sitting down on hot surfaces to protect ourselves – the same should apply for your pets! Signs of burned pads include limping, refusing to walk, licking or chewing feet, pads darker in color, missing a part of the pad and blisters. Make sure your pets walk on the grass if it is hot outside!


Sunburns on animals are very similar to sunburns on humans. It typically occurs in non-pigmented areas that have little to no hair such as the ears, nose and underside of the belly. Due to the nature of pets, they may lick the sun block off. It is a good idea to avoid the peak heat times from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and make sure your pet has access to shade. Aloe Vera can be used to help soothe the pain.


Dehydration includes symptoms such as the gums of the mouth feeling tack to touch, or the skin may become slow to return to its natural position when pulled up. Pets’ eyes may become sunken. In order to prevent dehydration in your pets, provide them with small amounts of water consistently throughout the day. It is important that the water is clean!

Heat Stroke

Symptoms of heat stroke in pets include panting, salivation, staggering, vomiting and diarrhea. If it becomes fatal, your pet’s temperature could range from 104 -110 degrees Fahrenheit putting them into a comatose state. To prevent this, provide shade and water and avoid spending long periods of time outside.

Hot Cars

It is crucial that pet owners do not leave their pets inside their cars. The heat can be 20-40 degrees warmer in a short period of time.

Abide by these safety tips to keep your beloved pets safe!

Sleep Deprivation

At times life can become extremely hectic causing humans to forget that sleep is essential for everyday tasks. A lack of sleep can result in a variety of issues, including your health. A sleeping disorder can put your body at risk for heart disease, heart attack, heart failure, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, obesity and can shorten your life expectancy.

Additionally, a lack of sleep can cause severe mental effects. Your brain becomes foggy, making it difficult to concentrate on the task and make decisions. It also affects your mood, making a person feel down to the point where they are falling asleep at work. A major area of concern when a person has had a lack of sleep is driving. It increases the chances of causing an incident but also of hurting someone else.  

Adhere to these safety tips regarding sleep to help boost your health and the safety of others:    

  1. It is recommended to have around 8 hours of good quality sleep a night to properly function. However, some people need more and some people need less. 
  2. Sleep can boost your immune system! If you seem to catch the flu or cold every time it goes around, your sleeping patterns could be at fault. Get your recommended hours of sleep in each day to help fend off bugs.
  3. Stick to a sleep schedule each night. Go to bed at the same time and wake up at the same time, even on weekends. This gets your body into a routine.
  4. Avoid naps! If you have trouble sleeping at night, it could be due to your power naps taken to get you through the day. 
  5. Exercise for at least 30 minutes each day. 
  6. Avoid alcohol, cigarettes and heavy meals later in the evening. Caffeine alone can disrupt your sleep, but eating a spicy meal before bed may cause you indigestion. 
  7. Wind down! Your body needs approximately an hour before falling asleep to activate sleep mode. Take part in calming activities such as reading, or listening to soothing music. Avoid using electronics before bed as the particular light it gives off makes it harder to fall asleep.

Long Weekends

For many of us, a long weekend symbolizes the true start of summer. It gives us the opportunity to meet up with friends and family, have a few drinks, enjoy the weather and hit the open road. With this in mind, it is extremely important to keep a few safety tips in mind!

• Plan in advance and be prepared. Before embarking on a journey, you want to make sure that you know exact directions to avoid being lost. It is also a good idea to have an emergency road safety kit and fully charged cell phone on hand.
• Long Weekends are widely-known for congested highways due to eager individuals excited to arrive at their destination. Leave plenty of time for your travels and always check weather conditions in advance.
• Prior to leaving, have your vehicle undergo a safety inspection. You want to ensure that it is in top condition, including all fluids filled and the tires properly inflated.
• While not necessary to carry your passport while travelling within the country, it is always a good idea to have an identification card for each person travelling in the event of an emergency.
• Ensure items inside and outside the vehicle are properly secured prior to your departure. If any items do come loose they could injure you, your vehicle, and/or other vehicles. 
• Safe driving practices are always in effect while travelling. If you have taken the defensive driving course, it may be useful. Remember to avoid speeding, tailgating, sudden accelerations and stops, and limit distractions while driving.

Sun Protection

Living in Saskatchewan, we are faced with winter for the majority of our seasons. However, when summer hits most people like to take full advantage. As much as we love spending time outside, it is important to protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful rays. Reviewing sun safety tips can prevent harmful sunburns.

The peak times for UV rays are between 10 A.M. and 2 P.M. It is recommended to invest in long sleeve clothes, or clothes with UPF built into them such as swim shirts and rash guards if you plan on spending a lot of time in the sun. Additional items such as sunglasses and an umbrella will be useful in preventing sunburn. 

When looking for the appropriate sunscreen, SPF 30 or higher will do the trick! SPF 30 protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. Creams are better to get an even application across the body, however spray sunscreen are useful for reapplication. If using a spray sunscreen, you will want to apply a thick even coat and thoroughly rub it into your skin to avoid missing sections of your body. 

The biggest hassle is getting children to willingly apply sunscreen. Keep it simple. Children are more inclined to put sunscreen on if it is fragrance free, and color free. If you are looking to avoid sunscreens with chemicals in them, look for the ones containing zinc and titanium. 

The biggest safety tip while spending time in the sun is to reapply. You must reapply sunscreen every two hours, or if you have gone swimming or are sweating.  It is often forgotten to reapply, due to the fact that the sunscreen may be water-resistant. It is still crucial to apply after swimming in a pool or lake despite water-resistant sunscreen. If forgotten about, it may lead to severe sunburn!

Boat Safety Tips

If you’ve ever visited Saskatchewan, you already know about the 100,000 of lakes and rivers that encompass the province. Summer activities such as boating, canoeing and kayaking are of high interest, however, like any activity involving a body of water, it can be dangerous. Below are several safety tips to check out before heading to the water!

Ensure your life jacket is Canadian-Approved floatation device. You must have one appropriately fitting lifejacket for each person on board. Often times adults feel they have strong enough swimming skills that they do not need to wear a life jacket. Water temperature, distances from shores and other factors can make swimming much more challenging. 

Check the weather forecast. Always enter the water when it is safe to do so, strong currents can come from nowhere. If you are already on the water and there are clouds, dark skies and distant rumbles of thunder, seek shore and shelter immediately. If your boat is unable to make it to shore, crouch down in the middle of the craft, or go below if possible. 

Be sure your watercraft is ready and has the proper equipment on board. Prior to leaving, a full safety inspection should be completed on your watercraft. If anything is not working properly you do not want to find out while on the water! It is required by law to have your Pleasure Craft Operator Card on hand as well as marine safety equipment.

Do not drink alcohol while operating a watercraft or while on the water. Alcohol impairs a person’s ability to think, act and prepare efficiently. If an emergency situation arises, you must be capable to handle it both mentally and physically. Driving while impaired can be detrimental to yourself, passengers and people swimming.

Keep watch for swimmers. Regardless what type of watercraft you are using, you must always be on the watch for swimmers. Keep a safe distance from anyone that is in the water.

Avoid fooling around. Water activities can be extremely fun, but should not be taken to the next level. There should be no paddle wars, wrestling or standing up when not needed as it can result in injuries. 

In order to be as safe as possible while entering a body of water, it is recommended to take all necessary training, courses and licenses required. The more knowledgeable you are the better. Review these safety tips with yourself and others prior to heading out on the water!

Campfire Safety

No matter what season we are in, campfires are a favorite outdoor activity for everyone. Who does not love sitting around a campfire, talking, singing, roasting marshmallows and creating memories to last a life-time?

While campfires are a fun and enjoyable thing to do, they can also be very dangerous. To reduce the risk of injuries and out of control fires several safety tips must be addressed. Remember that these tips are intended for children too. Keep everyone safe by taking the proper precautions prior to enjoying a bonfire.

  • Always check the weather. It is crucial to be aware of unexpected winds.
  • Do not build a bonfire around dangerous materials such as gas tanks, power lines, vehicles, dry grass and buildings.
  • Keep a bucket of water nearby and a fire extinguisher in case of emergency.
  • Never leave children or pets unsupervised by the fire.
  • Never leave a bonfire unattended, you must put it out prior to leaving.
  • Never burn aerosol and aluminum cans, plastic, and glass. It is bad for the environment and can be extremely dangerous!
  • Keep unused firewood away from the fire.
  • When extinguishing your fire, pour lots of water on it. You want to make sure the “hissing” sound stops. You may have to mix the water and embers to ensure everything is completely wet.
  • Review these safety tips with everyone present before enjoying a bonfire! 

At the end of the day, everyone wants to enjoy the fun and relaxation associated with bonfires. However, this also comes with the responsibility of properly maintaining and extinguishing the fire. When it comes to fire safety, be aware and be prepared!

BBQ Safety

We all love a good barbeque, especially during the warm months of summer. Nothing quite tops the company of family and friends, a cool drink and grilling outside. However, if not given the appropriate attention, barbequing can be quite dangerous. The Saskatchewan Safety Council recommends reviewing these home safety tips to allow you to have a fun and safe BBQ at any time.

1.    Make a clean start: Before beginning to BBQ, clean the burner port and tubes. These often get blocked by dust and cobwebs. It is essential to check all hoses and cylinder connections for gas leaks by applying 50/50 water and soap mixture to them. Remember bubbles are trouble! If you see bubbles, tighten connections, replace parts and retest!
2.    Ignite Right: Always open the lid first before lighting your BBQ. Failure to do so allows the gas to build up and can result in serious consequences! Once the lid is open, open the gas valve on the tank, turn on the burner controls and take a step back. Press the igniter to light your barbeque safely!
3.    Enclosed Spaces: Never BBQ in an enclosed space, it releases carbon monoxide which can be deadly. Grill outside!  
4.    Pay Attention: It is very easy to get distracted by family, friends, phone calls etc. BBQs are intended to be attended! Keep pets and kids away from the BBQ to avoid injuries.
5.    Transportation:  When transporting propane, it is crucial to do it properly. The tank must be upright with the service valve plugged, secured and ventilated. Keep all the windows open!

Following these safety tips will allow you to BBQ in a fun and safe environment for everyone!

Bicycle Safety

As spring and summer are quickly upon us, it is important to review crucial bike safety tips. In order to enjoy the weather and have fun with friends, Occupational Health and Safety suggest these guidelines be reviewed.

Ride Safely - In order to protect yourself always wear a helmet, the use of a helmet can save your life!  Remember to obey traffic lights, do not cross over the double yellow line on the road, and inspect your bike prior to riding using the ABC rule.

A – Air Pressure: Every tire has a recommended inflation on the sidewall of every tire. Make sure your          air pressure is not too high or too low!

B – Brakes: To check your brakes, make sure the brake pads are rubbing against the metal rims, not the rubber on the tires. Additionally, you should not be able to squeeze the brake lever to the extent in which it touches the handlebars. If this happens, your bicycle is not fit to ride.

C—Chain: Check to make sure your chain is not rusting. It is also a good idea to check the shifters and derailleurs to ensure these parts are functioning properly. Safety inspections may be inconvenient, but only take a few minutes and can save a life!

Ride Predictably – Riding predictably is safe and easy, but also the law. Key reminders when biking are to ride with traffic (not against it), stop at all stop lights and signs, yield to pedestrians, utilize hand-signals when turning, and leave sidewalks clear for safe walking.

Ride Politely – Informing the city of potholes and road imperfections can help prevent future injuries to those participating in any type of physical activity. Always be kind and considerate of others while riding, they must look out for you and you must look out for them

Flood Prevention and Preparation

Spring has sprung! This means that Saskatchewan will be experiencing a lot of rain, increasing the risk of floods. Flooding is the most frequent natural disaster in Canada. The dangers of flooding can occur in the form of flash flooding or heavy rain falls. Flash flooding happens in an instant, leaving minimal time to react.  It is usually caused by hurricanes, aggressive storms and dams that are broken. Heavy rainfall is another form of flooding in which the ground is still frozen or has already been saturated from previous rainfalls. With this in mind, it is always a good idea to be prepared. Here is a list of safety tips to ensure you and your loved ones are equipped in the event of a flood.

  1. Place weather protector sealant around basement windows and the base of all ground level doors.

  2. Install a sump-pump to remove excess water.

  3. Install drainage for downspouts – these should be far away from the house in order for water to flow away from the house.

  4. Turn off basement furnace and gas valves.

  5. Move furniture and electrical appliances to higher levels within the house.

  6. Remove any toxic substances such as pesticide. (You do not want this spreading throughout the house if a flood occurs!)

  7. Remove toilet bowls and block sewage drains.

  8. Have an Emergency Kit easily accessible.

As mentioned previously floods can occur at any time, making it difficult to plan ahead. Always have a radio on hand, it will become useful when the power is out and you need more information on the affected areas. If you are prompted by an emergency official always do as you are told. They are the most knowledgeable in this situation and are looking out for your safety.

The safety tips provided above act as a guideline, for more detailed information please visit http://www.getprepared.gc.ca/cnt/hzd/flds-ftr-en.aspx

  • Non-Perishable Food – Make sure to pack snacks such as granola bars and trail mix.

  • Traction – It is always a good idea to bring sand, kitty litter or carpet strips in case your vehicle becomes stuck.

  • Small Shovel – In addition to traction, you may need a small shovel to get your vehicle unstuck.

  • First Aid Supplies – In case anyone is hurt, you will have the necessary resources to help them.

  • Ice Scraper – Before attempting to drive anywhere you must make sure your windows are clear of snow enabling strong visibility.

In addition to these items, make sure you are prepared for your own personal needs. Depending on who you are traveling with, you may need to prepare for them too. For example, to ensure senior safety, pack all necessary medications.

All these safety tips may seem like a lot of work, but are fundamental when faced with an emergency crisis. Most listed supplies can be found in stores for your convenience. Saskatchewan Safety Council has winter survival kits at various price points. These can be found at http://www.sasksafety.org/training/community/winter-survival-kit

Promote Safety with Tool Box Talks

Safety meetings are critical to preventing injuries and saving companies time and money. By providing the proper knowledge and safety tips to employees, they can more easily identify hazards in their work environment. Therefore, as an employer, it is critical to make sure that you and your staff are trained, alert and dedicated to their safety.

Many companies are now participating in a practice called Tool Box Talks. The primary objective of a Tool Box Talk is to reduce work-related injuries and accidents by increasing employee’s safety awareness. A brief 10-15 minute “Tool Box Talk” can significantly decrease the chance of an employee becoming involved in an incident such as burning themselves or falling off a ladder.

What is a Tool Box Talk? A Tool Box Talk is a quick, informal group meeting, usually before the start of a work shift, where employees and managers of a department discuss particular safety issues and concerns. Tool Box Talks take place to:

  • Inform employees on changes with company procedures
  • Identify and develop controls for hazards
  • Increase employee participation and morale
  • Develop work processes
  • Discuss incident data

The Saskatchewan Safety Council encourages businesses to utilize Tool Box Talks daily or weekly, depending on the risks involved. Performing these talks at least once a week can provide employees with safety tips, ensure proper respiratory fit testing is completed, and improve safety inspections. Every day countless workers around the world are injured. Educating your employees on potential dangers can help reduce the risk!

  • Blinking
  • Yawning
  • Closing your eyes
  • Wandering or disconnected thoughts
  • Braking too late
  • No recollection of last few KM’s
  • Drifting in and out of lanes
  • Realizing you have slowed down unintentionally

  • Good sleep prior to long trips
  • Divide driving time between all passengers
  • Take rest stops every few hours to move around
  • Drink lots of water
  • Eat lighter meals
