Cold Weather Safety Tips in the Workplace

‘Tis the season to be careful. Slips, trips, and falls happen year-round, but winter weather creates a hazardous environment that increases the risk of injuries. Education is essential in preventing winter weather-related injuries damages.

 

Tips to Help Avoid Slips, Trips, and Falls During the Winter Season:

  • Remove snow, water, and ice on all walking surfaces immediately
  • Have rock salt and cat litter on hand to help melt precipitation and create traction
  • Educate your employees to be alert and have their hands ready to steady themselves when walking
  • Have your employees avoid carrying heavy loads that may compromise balance
  • Use signs, cones, barricades, and/or floor stands to warn your workers and visitors of hazards
  • Have your employees wear footwear with heavy treads for increased traction
