Prevent Injuries with Snow and Ice Management Plan
Dec 16, 2021
Slip and fall injuries are among the most common and costly injuries that occur in winter months. Our Snow and Ice Management Plan can help mitigate those risks. In addition, posters serve as valuable workplace reminders; download our series of Fall Prevention posters here (scroll down to Injury Prevention and Worksite Wellness).
You may want to consider ice cleats and traction aids to reduce employee slips and falls or special signage as well. We partner with two vendors Winter Walking and Ice Guardian, who offer policyholder discounts.
While slips and falls are the more common injuries we see in winter, don’t underestimate the toll the elements can take on workers outdoors. Review our Toolbox Talk—Getting Ready for Winter Work to reduce the risk of frostbite and hypothermia.
