There's Snow in Them Thar Hills!

With the forecast of snow in the mountain passes, it’s a reminder for us all to drive safely during the winter months. Did you know that we have an online course called “Winter Driving Procedures”? This 1-hour course provides easy to follow driving techniques to increase your safety while in adverse winter weather conditions. The content will define defensive driving, show how to recognize accident prevention methods and describe the impact of drinking and driving, as well as identify vehicle safety measures on the job.

Whether you’re driving a car, truck, passenger van, or big road equipment, now is a good time to view this course! Supervisors can show this course at a staff meeting in short segments, or assign the course to employees to view at their convenience. It is our goal to prevent accidents year-round and to provide tools to help our members stay safe. Contact us with questions at 503-763-3800 ext. 8 or learn@cisoregon.org.

This course is available to those members who have CIS Workers' Comp coverage.

If you do not yet have a policy that discusses how your entity responds to a weather emergency, we have a sample policy in the Employee Handbook Template. For those who have access to the CIS website resources at cisoregon.org, login and click the Risk Management tab. Click on the Risk Resource Library. Then select the Employee Handbook Template. It’s on page 50 under “Bad Weather/Emergency Closing.”
