Winter Hazards - Slips, Trips and Falls Around Facilities

Posted by Marty Huseman on Nov 24, 2017

Slip, trip and fall (STF) injuries are common in agribusiness, especially in the winter time. Prepare now to minimize slip, trip and fall hazards around your facilities and before the ice and snow arrive.  Grab a clipboard and pad and make a list of the top 3-5 most obvious areas that have given employees problems in the past. Then get feedback from employees where they feel STF hazards are around the operation. Next do a walk around to find areas that are potential walking and working surface hazards. This should include areas where there is clutter, reduced or blocked exits, uneven surfaces and areas where water, ice or snow can accumulate.

Winter Hazards of Snow and Ice

Posted by Al Tweeten on Dec 6, 2016

If your agribusiness operation doesn’t present enough opportunity for slips and falls, wait for a snow or ice storm!  Even without a storm, freezing temperatures can create additional hazards due to the freezing of existing wet or muddy areas.  Take time now to identify areas where some additional grading or surface changes could reduce the water or moisture subject to freezing.  Some of these areas include downspouts from roofs, low spots in parking areas, runoff from lots, etc.
