Slip and fall accidents are inevitable during winter months. Wearing footwear with grooved rubber soles will provide additional traction when conditions are slippery or icy. It is important to avoid rushing when you need to clear snow from your walkway or driveway. Make sure you have the correct type of tools for the job. A snow blower, wide shovel, plus salt or melting crystals help make a slippery surface safer to maneuver.
