Sometimes you think you've heard it all, and we have when it comes to excuses why people don't want to wear ice cleats. Time for a top 6 list...
- Too expensive.
- My employees won’t wear them.
- Can’t wear indoors.
- Can’t drive with them on.
- Employees won’t take care of them.
- We've tried everything and nothing works in my environment.
Reality of buying the right ice traction for shoes or ice cleats from the right manufacturer.
Ice cleats are far less expensive than the resulting costs associated with a slip and fall.
Have you ever given your employees the chance to try them? If you did and they provided negative feedback did you discuss the feedback with the manufacturer to see what the options were?
Some ice cleats and traction aids are safe to wear indoors. They won’t damage floors or cause a slip hazards. Just because something looks similar with a quick glance doesn’t mean they have the same functionality.
Winter Walking has several options of ice traction for shoes that are safe to wear while driving or operating machinery.
Is it possible you wrongly placing blame on your employees for their lack of cooperation with PPE? Do they take care of the safety glasses, hard hats, high visibility vests you buy? If the answer is no, perhaps they recognize inferior quality.
