Slips, Trips and Falls

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety announces that the onset of the winter season is almost here and members of the CUA community should prepare for the many hazards presented to those working in cold weather. Such hazards include slips, trips and falls, muscle strains, frostbite and hypothermia.  The most common of these hazards are slips, trips and falls. Due to the lower temperatures, walkways, working surfaces and stairs are more likely to stay wet or muddy after precipitation. In extreme temperatures, these surfaces become covered with ice and present an increased risk of falling.

Taking preventative measures can significantly reduce chances of falling. Such measures include wearing sturdy shoes/boots with treads that are in good condition, walking slowly and carefully during inclement weather, and using handrails when climbing stairs or traversing steep inclines/declines. Walkers should look out for slick/icy spots on stairs and walkways and black ice on asphalt surfaces. Before using ladders and other equipment, clear surfaces using de-icers.

Report any significant slip, trip and fall hazards to the Facilities Services Center at 202-319-5121. If you have any questions concerning the prevention of slips, trips and falls, or any other winter hazards, contact Will Wood of the Office of Environmental Health and Safety at 202-319-5865.
