With the return of winter weather, ice and snow can cause roads and walkways to be hazardous. Remember to be mindful of slips and fall hazards off-the-job as well as on-the-job. The Hartford, an international insurance and financial services operation, offers some helpful hints.
- Keep icy walkways and steps at work or home clear of snow and ice.
- Be prepared for bad weather; stock up on sand and road salt before the first flakes begin to fall.
- Make sure holiday decorations don't block walkways or create other obstacles to pedestrians.
