Freezing weather conditions cause risk to the human body. Most employers do not provide the basic or extra protection needed to continually work under freezing (32°F) conditions. In a "Time deadline" work environment, warming breaks are not substantially given nor allowed (ex. Railroad). Requiring such petition pay (Hazard pay) would help employees with the extra bit of income to acquire needed cold weather work gear to successfully complete job deadlines under extreme weather conditions required under employment in outdoors and save on medical costs due to under prepared for cold weather.
