By the Numbers: Rid These Seven Surfaces of Ice
Rid These 7 Surfaces of Ice
Don’t take chances when it comes to icy surfaces. Ice on walking and working surfaces can cause serious slip, trip, and fall hazards which can lead to disabling injuries, serious concussions, and loss of life.
Ice hanging from door and roof overhangs and any other overhead structures creates a falling object hazard. Massive sheets of ice can break free and slide down a roof. Large icicles can break and fall under their own weight or as the ice starts to melt. Smaller falling icicles can damage vision and cause other hazards and injuries.
Avoid these hazards by ensuring procedures are in place and enforced for the safe removal of ice on these seven surfaces. You can add surfaces specific to your area and the type of work being done.
- Stairs and stair railings
- Entrances and exits
- Door and roof overhangs
