Winter Safety Tips from PMC

1. Wear boots or overshoes with grip soles such as rubber and neoprene composite. Slick leather or plastic soles on shoes will definitely increase the risk of slipping.

2. When getting out of your vehicle, look down at the surface. If it’s coated with ice you might want to park in a different place.

3. Use special care when entering or exiting Vehicles, use the vehicle for support. Before standing brace yourself with the vehicle door and seat back, this will give you some stability.

4. Step - Don't jump from vehicles

5. Don't walk with your hands in your pockets. This reduces the ability to use your arms for balance if you do slip.

6. Take short shuffling steps in very icy areas.

7. Don't carry or swing heavy loads, such as large boxes, cases or purses that may cause you to lose your balance when you are walking.

8. When walking, curl your toes under and walk as flat-footed as possible.

9. Don't step on uneven surfaces. Avoid curbs with ice on them.

10. Place your full attention on walking. Digging in your pocketbook or backpack while walking on ice is dangerous as is using your phone, especially for texting.

11. Test potentially slick areas by tapping your foot on them.

12. Keep walkways clear of debris, water, ice and slippery materials and equipment.

13.  Use the Ambulance Bay instead of the ER entrance when possible to receive or dismiss patients.
