ICETRED™ - Ice Traction FootwearReduce Lost Time Injuries Caused By Slips & Falls When Working On Ice And Snow.

ICETRED™ - Ice Traction FootwearAccording to the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), there were 67,418 hospital emergency department visits in Canada due to unintentional falls on ice in 2019.

Consider the magnitude of costs and losses that are created by injuries from accidental slips and falls. We all know that the expenses associated with injuries of this type extend far beyond medical treatment for both employee and company.

Winter ICETRED™ Traction Devices offer a truly ECONOMICAL SOLUTION to a very real SAFETY concern.

Winter ICETRED™ Traction Devices are lightweight and fit over the footwear people already own and feel comfortable in. This reduces fatigue caused by walking on icy surfaces or from using cumbersome traction aids and unfamiliar footwear.

Factors to Consider in Fall Prevention

Eliminating Slips and Trips on a Level Surface

  1. All aisles and walkways should be kept free of clutter and debris.
  2. Oil spills and other slippery materials should be cleaned up immediately.
  3. Areas that are slippery because of the continuous use of water--common in the floriculture industry--should be off-limits as general traffic areas and restricted to those workers who must perform their duties in that area.
  4. Workers should put tools away when they are no longer needed.
  5. Sand and/or salt should be spread on icy surfaces if work has to be done in the vicinity. If the weather is particularly bad, consider putting the job off until conditions improve.
  6. Workers should wear safety footwear, appropriate for the work being done, to prevent slipping and falling on walking surfaces.

OH&SA - Employers General Responsibilities

  1. The employer shall provide information, instruction and supervision to protect the safety of workers who may be injured by falling:
    1. from a height within a structure;
    2. from a ladder;
    3. through openings in a work surface;
    4. while working on a level surface; or
    5. while working on and around machinery.
  2. The employer, supervisor and workers should keep work surfaces clear of slip and trip hazards to the greatest extent possible.
  3. Workers should:
    1. follow the instruction and training provided by the employer;
    2. learn to recognize potential slip and trip hazards;
    3. report to their supervisor, anything they feel could be a threat to sound footing.
