To help make sure you stay safe this season, we have compiled some tips for how to avoid slips and falls, and what to do if you do get injured. Keep updated on the weather If you are in an area expected to get snow or icy weather, ensure you are getting updates on when and where it might get bad. This can help you avoid those roads or places and will help prevent injury. Watch your step Be hyper-aware of where you are stepping if you do happen to be out in icy weather. Try your best to avoid stairs and curbs, and make sure you look before you step up or down. Walk cautiously no matter where you are just in case there is a slick spot you cannot see! If it is icy, look for a spot with some grip so you are not planting your foot on a completely iced over area.
