Beware of Slips and Falls
It’s Ice Season in Montana…Beware of Slips and Falls
- Select appropriate footwear. Some materials are very slippery on snow & ice (plastic, leather, foam).You’ll get good traction with rubber soles having deep traction grips. Strap-on non-slip shoe treads are available in stores at reasonable prices.
- Get an earlier start to your day. It takes more time to navigate winter walkways safely so it’s a good idea to leave a little earlier to get to your destination in time and injury free.
- T Once you get to your destination, take your time and walk slowly; take small steps for stability. Focus on what you are doing. Walk attentively.
- Choose your path carefully. Avoid slippery surfaces as much as possible.
- Keep hands free for balance and use handrails whenever possible. If you slip, you will need your arms to restore balance.
- Keep your eyes on where you are going; walk in designated walkways as much as possible.
- Test possible slick areas first with your toe to see how slippery it is before putting your full body weight on the area.
- Get the snow off of the bottom of your footwear when entering buildings.
- Take care of colleagues by spreading sand from the buckets in building doorways on slippery spots.
- Report trouble spots to the school engineer or custodian ASAP.
