1. Slippery Conditions: Remove and/or control slippery conditions wherever possible -
Remove snow, ice and clean up spills. Use traction tape on potentially slippery surfaces and always wear appropriate shoes for best traction.
2. Slow Down: In slippery conditions, slow down, bend your knees slightly and take slower, shorter steps. This will help to be better prepared to react quickly to a change in traction.
3. Limit What You Carry: Carrying heavy items can challenge your sense of balance. Try not to carry too much - leaving your hands free to catch or protect yourself in the event you lose traction and begin to slip or fall.
4. Use Railing: Railings are there for a reason - use them even when you feel it is not necessary. If you lose traction, holding a railing may be what prevents a fall.
Be aware of potential hazards not only at work but wherever you are.
If you see something, say something! If we all take ownership, then we can help to not only keep ourselves safe but others as well.
