The Dangers of Voluntary Safety

5/16/18 8:11 AM
I’ve found that there are two ways people tend to look at ice cleats. Ice cleats are a last resort. Ice cleats are part of the workplace safety gear solution. Let me ask you a question: Why are your employees using the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) they have today? Chances are, your company has a lot of PPE that are mandatory, not voluntary, as a condition of employment. What about safety glasses, hard hats, steel-toe boots, high-visibility clothing, fire-retardant apparel? You get my point. These items are mandatory at most workplaces, including yours. Why? Because your employees experi[…]

Six Reasons You Should NOT Buy Ice Cleats

2/26/18 8:58 AM
The winter season is now behind us. 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.

Do You Have A Winter Slip and Fall Prevention Program?

3/14/17 6:08 AM
I have young kids at home. Every night, they eat dinner. Sometimes they eat their dinner early and sometimes it’s late. But every night they eat. So what would happen if I waited until they were starving to feed them. And at that point I said, “Okay, just spot me a few hours. I have to go to the market, buy some ingredients, come home, look up a recipe and then cook you dinner. Sound good, kids?” Just the thought of the ensuing tantrums is enough to ensure that this scenario never unfolds in my home.

When Is The Best Time To Order Ice Cleats?

9/22/15 10:06 AM
Days are getting shorter. Nights are getting longer and colder. Not far in the future, we will all start our dreaded morning commutes in the dark of night. Yes, it's starting to feel and look a lot like fall. Soon, we'll see our first frost on the early morning grass. And we'll need to warm up our cars to avoid scraping windshields. (For the record, I hate that! Nothing puts me in a worse mood than this seasonal chore.) So face it, winter is coming. This is a fact. Not an opinion that safety professionals should waste time debating.

Don't Wait To The Last Minute To Order Your Ice Cleats

1/26/15 9:25 AM
The other day I was downtown for an important meeting. On my way into the city, the skies began to grow dark and by the time I pulled into the parking lot, the heavens had opened up and were dumping buckets of water all around me. From inside my car, I could see that some enterprising young fellow had opened up a makeshift umbrella sales stand on the corner. Not wanting to arrive to my appointment soaking wet,I parked my car, made a mad dash to his stand and gladly forked over the $20 for the small black parasol.

Do You Buy Ice Cleats & Still Have Slip and Fall Incidents?

1/12/15 9:53 AM
I recently spoke with a customer who has been buying our ice cleats for years. They’ve had a few slip and fall accidents on the ice and snow this winter and are, understandably, very frustrated. After the accident investigations, they realized each incident had the same the root cause: None of the employees who fell were wearing the ice cleats and winter traction aids that were being provided. Does this sound familiar to you? This is one of the most frustrating, but preventable, things a safety professional can hear. Have you ever noticed problems with employee engagement? Most likely, you hav[…]
