Preparing for Winter Weather
Slips, trips and falls are prevalent when winter weather takes hold — and preparation is the first step in reducing the risk. Before the first snowfall, consider the following:
- Ensure you have access to weather advisory alert systems.
- Tune-up snow blowers and other snow removal equipment or consider hiring a snow removal contractor.
- Make a plan for when off-premise work is necessary.
- Maintain a supply of salt, sand and/or other ice melters.
- Obtain proper footwear (boots, ice cleats, indoor shoes).
- Post slip/trip/fall advisories around the building.
- Ensure entryway mats and housekeeping supplies are on the ready.
