Ergodyne Ice Carousel - Man Pushing Machine in Cold Snowy Weather

Battling Extreme Winter Cold to build the World’s Largest Ice Carousel

And while Canada may not have AFV, they still have their fair share of wipeouts. Each year in the North, over 42,000 workers are injured in fall accidents—accounting for nearly one out of every five “time-loss injuries”.
