Winter months present additional hazards that are typically not factors for employees during warmer weather—specifically, slip and fall concerns. With snow and ice-covered conditions, you run the risk of taking major falls, which can lead to serious injuries.
If you begin to slip, twist your body and roll backward to avoid falling forward and injuring your face. Try to relax your body when you start to feel your legs give way. If you are carrying a load, throw it off to the side so it does not land on you when you fall. This will also free your arms to help break your fall.
