Managing Winter Slips and Falls

 

The winter months in New England can be very icy and snowy.  Slips and falls on icy surfaces are the number one cause of winter-time injuries and rising workers’ compensation costs.   When it comes to slip and fall prevention, there can be no shortcuts.  The only way to reduce accidents is through a comprehensive slip and fall program.  One of the first steps any organization should take is to provide ice walking devices such as “ice grips”, along with sanding/salting walking areas/parking lots and using entrance weather mats.

 

After some extensive research and comparison FutureComp has developed a program for “ice grips” with the Jordan David Company – Winter Walking. The two main ice grips that clients are using are:
