Be careful when stepping outside your home and consider the following tips to eliminate or minimize the hazards of SLIPS and/or FALLS when there is ice or snow:

  • Wear shoes or boots that provide traction on snow and ice. Avoid high heels and shoes without treads.
  • Use walkways that have been shoveled and sanded or salted, if possible.
  • Keep both hands free for balance, rather than in your pockets.
  • Use handrails where available.
  • Avoid carrying loads on stairs; or carry loads that you can see over.
  • Look ahead when you walk.
  • Test potentially slick areas by tapping your foot on them.
  • Use special care when entering and exiting vehicles; use the vehicle for support.
  • When entering buildings, use mats to remove moisture from footwear to prevent creating wet, slippery conditions indoors.
