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