Ice Traction: A Necessity For Winter

Which boots should you be wearing on the job?

Slips, trips and falls are the number one injury on the job site according to OSHA. What are you doing to protect yourself, when working in slushy and icy conditions in the winter months? Proper footwear is needed based on the types of work and hazards a worker will be exposed to during the day.

Emergent Safety offers a wide variety of ice traction, to keep your employees from slipping and falling during the winter months. To help, we broke down our ice traction into four separate categories. Our team offers complimentary job analysis where we can help you decide which type of traction is best!
