Always wear appropriate slip-resistant shoes

Slips and falls are extremely commonplace; so much so that they make up the majority of injuries reported to us. In the wintertime, precarious road and sidewalk conditions make it even more important to be on alert for potential hazards that can trigger an injury.

  • Check the condition of the area ahead of your walk and look for uneven surfaces, debris, water or ice
  • Take your time and always use three points of contact when entering and exiting a vehicle
  • Always wear appropriate slip-resistant shoes
  • Never run on the job—even when you are in a hurry. It severely increases your chances for slips, trips, falls and injuries.
