Free Ice Grippers for UAS Employees

To:         UAS Faculty and Staff

From      Dan Garcia, UAS Health and Safety

Re:         Free Ice Grippers for UAS Employees

 

First clear day and the frost is here!   Thin ice covers everything on these cool, crisp mornings.  Don’t take your sure footing for granted.  What used to be sloped wet pathways are now sloped icy pathways. 

I know you are waiting for me to say “ice grippers” but there are more important strategies that are even more effective:

  • Choose footwear wisely.  Wear the ones with good traction. 
  • Be mindful of the path right in front of you.  I know that sounds rather Zen, but really, bring your eyes down to the path right in front of you. 
  • Bend your knees, take short steps, walk flat footed or shuffle for stability.
  • Keep your hands out of your pockets and avoid carrying a heavy load.
  • Look out for black ice, especially in the morning and in areas shaded from the sun.
  • When walking on stairs use the hand rails and plant your feet firmly on each step.
  • Use special care when getting out of or into your vehicle.


Some Southeast weather can defeat the best common sense walking practices so always keep your ice grippers handy.  This is especially important at the beginning of the winter season while we are all getting used to the icy conditions.  

 Ice grippers are free to UAS employees.  If you have a pair from prior years, check that they are serviceable.  If you need a new pair, please send me an e-mail with your boot size and your mail stop.

My e-mail address is daniel.garcia@uas.alaska.edu

If you do fall or encounter a particularly slippery walking surface on the campus, please let Facilities Services know: 796-6496.

Call me if you have any questions or to report a falling injury: 796-6077

Ice Grippers - Walking on Thin Ice - Incident Reporting

To:          UAS Faculty and Staff

From:    Dan Garcia, UAS Health and Safety

Date:     11-4-2010

Subject:               Free Ice Grippers for UAS Employees!

As the temperature dips below freezing you may soon find yourself facing a sheet of ice that used to be the sidewalk.  If you wear your ice grippers, you’ll be walking with confidence. 

If your ice grippers from previous years are still serviceable, keep them handy.  Please do not request a new pair if yours are still functional as supplies are limited.  If you need a new pair, please send me an e-mail with your boot size and mail stop. 

My e-mail address is daniel.garcia@uas.alaska.edu

Call me if you have any questions: 796-6077

Wear your ice grippers and don’t let that sidewalk be a slidewalk ! 

 

Tips for Walking on Ice


Plan ahead and give yourself sufficient time.

·         Take short steps or shuffle for stability.

·         Walk at a slower pace so you can react quickly to a change in traction.

·         Bend your knees a little, walk flat footed and watch where you are stepping.

·         Keep your hands out of your pockets and avoid carrying a heavy load.

·         Use caution on area that have been cleared of snow.  Look out for black ice, especially in the morning and in areas that are shaded from the sun.

·         When walking on steps, always use the hand rails and plant your feet firmly on each step.

·         When entering a building, remove your ice grippers and as much snow from your boots as you can.  Floors and stairs may be wet and slippery.

·         Use special care when entering and exiting vehicles.

 

 

 

 

Report Incidents and Accidents to the Health and Safety Office

Timely reporting to Facilities Services of icy conditions or slip and fall incidents allows us to take steps to address the hazard quickly. 

As a general reminder, the following UA incident/accident reporting requirements apply to you, the campus community:

·         Any situation requiring the implementation of either a campus or UA Emergency Operations Plan, and use of public response agencies.

Report within 8 hours:

·         Property damage or loss expected to result in a claim over $10,000 (but less than a major loss as described above).

·         Any environmental release that is reportable to either a federal, state or local regulatory agency (but less than a major incident as described above)

Within 24 Hours:

·         Any injury to a third party  (anyone who is not an employee)

·         Employee injuries requiring a doctor visit or time off work.

·         All motor vehicle accidents involving the university and a third party.
