Preventing Slips and Falls on Ice During Winter

Most of America is now in the depths of winter. As part of our winter safety series, today we will list a few quick tips on avoiding slips and falls on ice.

  1. When working outside in snowy or icy conditions, insulated boots with rubber treads can be very helpful to provide traction.
  2. Walk slowly over icy patches
  3. If it is extremely snowy out, wear high visibility clothing so passing cars and trucks can see you and avoid walking in the street.
  4. Ice can hide under a light dusting of snow, so use caution when walking in snow.
