Do Ice Cleats Work?

2/6/18 8:40 AM
Back in 2010, if you were to type the term “ice cleats” into Google, you would find roughly 18,000 results. (Trust me; I’ve done that search plenty over the years.) Try the same search in 2018 and you will find over 1,600,000 results! So what does this tell you? For one thing, ice cleats are far more popular and more prevalent in today’s world than they were just four or five years ago. I would make the simple argument that the marketplace would not have expanded so quickly if ice cleats did not work. But of course your question, “do ice cleats even work?” cannot be answered quite that simply.

Are Ice Cleats Safe to Wear Indoors?

Think About Slip and Fall Prevention Before It’s An Issue.

3/21/17 6:17 AM
I know a safety coordinator at a large Canadian company. The conversation I had with him one winter stuck with me. When we spoke, he was in no mood to discuss the use of an ice cleat or other winter traction aids. He admitted that he was sick of winter, in general, and sick of hearing about ice cleats, in particular. He was tired of having to “deal” with them all the time. Does this sound familiar to you?
