Winter Ice Brings Slippery Surfaces to Wisconsin
It’s winter in Wisconsin again. The time of year when heating bills are on the rise. Unfortunately, injuries from slip and falls on ice are also on the rise. With winter comes freezing rain, snow and ice. These winter conditions can create major hazards for pedestrians. It is important for business owners and homeowners alike to ensure that the walkways, sidewalks, driveways and parking lots are as safe for pedestrians. Inadequately shoveled, salted or sanded walking surfaces can allow ice to form and cause dangerous and slippery walking surfaces. Careful diligence by property and business owners can limit or event prevent slip and falls on these hazardous conditions.
