The change in season is upon us. Depending on where you live it can vary from severe winter storms to mild yet wet weather.
It is during this time of year, due to the drastic change in weather, than we see a rise in “slip and fall” accidents. Although it might seem difficult to avoid these kinds of accidents, it really isn’t.
A simple quick solution is to treat yourself to a new pair of work boots. Boots with good soles have better traction on icy wet surfaces. Besides the comfort they also keep your feet warm and dry.
But warm dry feet may not be enough to ward off the cold and flu-type symptoms that appear during this season. As the season changes, and people spend more time indoors, colds are more easily spread. It is extremely important to choose the proper cold and flu medicine. Many of these products contain alcohol or other ingredients that can make you drowsy. Make sure your cold or flu remedy is for daytime use so that you can keep a clear head when using heavy equipment.
By following these simply safety tips we can have a safer and happier holiday season.
