Avoid slips and falls in icy conditions :
Slips and falls in icy conditions are a common problem. But there are things that we can all do to reduce the risk of getting hurt. Follow the guidelines below if you do have to go out in icy conditions.
Tips for avoiding slips and falls:
- Think about the best route to your destination and plan on a little extra time to get there
- Avoid rushing or taking shortcuts over areas where snow or ice removal is incomplete
- Select appropriate footwear - flat footwear with rubber soles provides better traction on ice and snow than leather-soled or high-heeled shoes
