Icy Parking Lot Causes Slip

An employee arrived at work on a cold February morning.  When the employee walked around to the passenger side of his car to retrieve his bag, he slipped on a patch of ice and fell.


Factors to consider at your site or on your project include, but are not limited to, the following:

Examine your surroundings especially your walk path on cold, icy days.  Check to make sure there isn’t ice on your path.

Parking in an alternate location if the area that you have parked in has not been cleared.  The company responsible for clearing the lots and sidewalks may have not made it to your area. 

Consider this example as you complete today’s work activities. 

Think about the hazards associated with your particular work, and the steps that can be taken to increase safety on your job.
