We don't just make ice cleats, we make slips and falls disappear.™

The Perfect Time To Order?

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.

“Strongly Recommended” Is Not Strong Enough

I help companies of all sizes, ranging from several hundred to more than 100,000 employees. On the surface, you wouldn’t think they have much in common when it comes to safety. But, in reality, their approaches are often identical when it comes to solving the problem of winter slips and falls on snow and ice. The truth is, preventing winter slips and falls is low-hanging fruit in the world of employee safety. With minimal effort, effective safety professionals have the ability to save their organizations huge sums of money, in both workers compensation costs and lost production time.

The Dangers of Voluntary Safety

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 are 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?
