4 Work Day Safety Tips: When There’s Snow and Ice (For employers)

  1. Prevent slips, trips, and falls by clearing all walking surfaces of snow and ice, and spreading de-icer, as quickly as possible after a winter storm.
  2. Employers should consider options to avoid working on elevated heights; plan ahead for
    safe snow removal of inclines, steps and ladders by clearing snow and ice from surfaces,
    and de-icing.
  3. When work on snow or ice is unavoidable, workers’ footwear should have good traction and
    insulation. Water resistant boots or rubber over-shoes with good rubber treads may be a
    requirement.
  4. General workwear should be warm enough to prevent harmful exposure to cold
    temperatures and include warm knit hats and gloves.
