The durability of ice cleats is a commonly asked question among safety professionals. Before purchasing ice cleats, it is essential to understand how long they are expected to last.

This means that ice cleats may not be effective on other slippery surfaces such as wet floor[…]

From time to time, we like to revisit some of our most popular blog entries. If safety professionals are looking for specific information, we’re always happy to provide it.

But I don’t think that my post was popular because people wanted to hear why these regula[…]
