Safety boots needed in slippery conditions

Snow and ice have hit northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland as winter finally arrives in the UK.

With people facing black ice on roads and pavements, the Met Office is maintaining severe weather warnings for many of the affected regions.

In slippery and treacherous conditions such as these, it is important for workers to wear safety boots that have good grip to minimise the risk of slips and falls.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) says that accidents are much more likely to occur in autumn and winter because "there is less daylight, leaves fall onto paths and become wet and slippery and cold weather spells cause ice and snow to build up on paths".

Businesses can minimise accidents by regularly removing leaves from pathways and gritting pathways in the event of snow and ice. The HSE also recommends ensuring the adequate lighting is in place so that workers can find their way safely as the nights draw in.
