The business implications of having an accident on your premises can be pretty steep. Winter is the most crucial time when you need to maintain eco traction and ensure that you do not incur any medical expenditure. With heavy snowfall, sleet, and icy surfaces, you must be doubly prepared to handle work-related injuries. 

Did you know nearly 20% to 30% of work-related injuries lead to some disablement in the US? Despite the fact these accidents and injuries happen every year, we still see very little to no preparation for winters. Some of these are minor, while a few can lead to significant repercussions.
