THE WINTER THAT JUST WOULDN’T END

10/9/18 8:20 AM
The Winter of 2017 - 2018 in the Northeast US was definitely one for the record books. With record breaking cold temperatures, frequent and massive snow falls, ice storms and the resulting school cancellations it seemed like it would never end. Although it still doesn't feel like it, according to the calendar, Spring has finally and officially arrived! Before you completely put this winter behind you I have a question for you. This question has the ability to help you get better employee buy-in when trying to prevent winter slip and falls in ice and snow.

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
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 […]

MY GUYS HATE TAKING THEIR ICE CLEATS ON AND OFF

2/20/18 9:15 AM
Far and away, the most common complaint we hear is that people hate taking their ice cleats on and off throughout the day, especially when they walk from outside to inside frequently. Who can blame them? Winter slips and falls on snow and ice are often the number one cause of record-able incidents. While ice cleats seem like an obvious solution to reduce accidents, there are two realities that complicate the issue: 1) Most jobs do not exist exclusively on ice and snow. 2) Most ice cleats are good at one thing and one thing only – increase traction on ice and snow.

Do You Have A Winter Slip and Fall Prevention Program?

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.

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.
