Preventing Falls in Winter Conditions 

Even with a mild winter this season, there is always a potential for serious injury when storms do bring snow, ice and slippery conditions. For best practices, when walking in winter conditions use these walking tips.

  • Walk at a slower pace
  • Keep an eye on where you are going
  • Look for and avoid slippery surfaces
  • Stay on designated walkways
  • Schedule extra time to get where you are going
  • Use handrails
  • Remove snow and mud from your shoes before entering a building
  • Wear the appropriate footwear for the conditions
