YOUR JOB DOESN'T GET SNOW DAYS

3/16/22 8:30 AM
Our goal is to permanently reduce your organization’s slips and falls. When you work with Winter Walking, your slips and falls become our slips and falls and we won’t stop until they disappear. We understand that a worker whose job task requires them to deal with ice and snow for hours at a time, day after day, week after week cannot risk using an ice cleat that may break after a few hours or days. We build our ice cleats to last all season long, year in and year out.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR EMPLOYEES SAFE INDOORS & OUTDOORS

2/28/22 8:00 AM
When it comes to ice cleats, most are NOT safe to wear indoors. Traditional ice cleats are engineered for one thing – preventing slip and fall incidents on ice. Since Ice and snow don’t exist indoors, manufacturers don’t concentrate on indoor flooring materials when developing ice cleats to prevent slips and falls. This can severely complicate a company’s goal of reducing slip and fall incidents because, if traditional ice cleats are worn indoors, your employees are now at a high risk of causing a slip hazard. In other words, remember the OUTDOOR slipping incident you may avoid because ice cle[…]

WHY ARE THERE NO REGULATIONS AROUND ICE CLEATS?

1/3/22 7:45 AM
Good question! Most PPE that you deal with as a safety professional has some sort of third-party anti-slip regulation that guides you in your decision making. Whether that standard comes from ANSI, OSHA or CSA, etc., there is typically some predetermined barometer for gauging whether the specific PPE you are considering has “passed the test.” This is true for everything from gloves and hard hats to steel toe boots and even indoor slip-resistant footwear. But when it comes to ice cleats and traction aids, there are NO STANDARDS. Why is that?

Falls are the world’s leading cause of injuries, sending hundreds of thousands of people to the hospital each year alone.

HOW LONG SHOULD ICE CLEATS LAST?

11/30/21 6:00 AM
How long should an ice cleat last? This is the most common question I get from safety professionals. It’s a fair question to ask and one you should have an understanding of before you purchase ice cleats. And when someone asks me that question, what I’m hearing is, “How many of these things am I going to buy to get through the winter?” Some ice cleats for shoes are built for recreational purposes, like walking the dog and shoveling the driveway, while others are built for utility workers, letter carriers and construction workers. If you use the wrong ice cleat for the wrong job task, you will […]
