According to the CDC, cold weather months and the accompanying snow and ice can make Winter more dangerous than Summer months.
Did you know?
- One million Americans are injured due to slip and fall injuries every year. The risk of slip and fall injuries increases dramatically during winter months.
- Slips and falls are not the main cause of fatal workplace injuries but they represent the primary cause of lost days from work.
- In 2014, there were 42,480 workplace injuries or illnesses from ice, sleet, or snow that required at least one day off of work as a result.
Of course, we can’t live in a bubble all Winter. We can, however, reduce the number of snow and ice-related slip and falls by keeping parking lots, parking surfaces, and sidewalks free of ice and snow.
Do you need a snow and ice removal plan for your commercial property?
