The Staff at Nucar after a recent snow cleanup.
Snow removal and storm cleanup aren’t the easiest days to work at NHADA member locations. It's always windy and freezing cold after a good snowstorm, and moving snow is physically demanding, making for tough conditions for the staff. Winter storms are one of the leading causes of employee injuries.
One thing NHADA members can do to make the best of the weather situation, and have a little fun while spoiling their employees, is to participate in the NHADA Winter Weather Slip/Fall Prevention Contest.
New England Kenworth won some new snow brooms!
The NHADA Winter Weather Slip/Fall Prevention Contest is a risk management campaign aimed at creating awareness of winter hazards, documenting the extensive efforts made by NHADA members to keep people safe and building employee morale. To participate, members can enter here, or can email pictures of clean-up activities or slip/fall prevention ideas/hacks to their NHADA Loss Prevention Representative or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Members are allowed one entry per weather event and EVERY entry wins a fabulous prize! Prizes include gift cards, NHADA apparel/swag, snow brooms, etc. At the end of the season, the member with the best entries wins the grand prize!

Hopefully, there will be little to no snow to clear after this event, but when storms do occur, we strongly encourage members to participate as a way of documenting the work performed to keep employees and customers safe and to award employees whose hard work makes it happen.
