Accuweather.com Predicts Severe Weather this Winter
The weather experts at Accuweather.com have delivered a word of caution to Americans about the upcoming winter weather season. In a report published in late October, long-range weather forecasters provided the latest analysis of the weather patterns likely to move through the U.S.—and the outlook wasn’t pretty. Here are a few of the main takeaways from the report:
- Northeast and Mid Atlantic: Expect to See More Snow
- Southeast: Expect Triple Threat of Rain, Snow, and Ice
- Midwest: Buckle Down for Extreme Cold
Preventing Slips and Falls This Winter
There are several things property owners can do to prevent slip and fall accidents this winter, including:
Review safety protocols: Every business should have a set protocol established for certain situations, and severe weather is no exception. Before winter, take time to review safety protocols with employees to ensure everyone is on the same page. Snow management places, crowd management plans, emergency evacuations, and cleaning rotations are all examples of important protocols that should be evaluated now, long before the first snowflake falls.
Inspect major traffic areas: Severe weather quickly leads to increased accumulation of rain, snow, and ice. This drives the buildup of moisture, which causes both slips as well as dangerous mold and mildew. Inspect major areas of entrance, exit, and flow within the facility to identify areas that might be especially dangerous. Smooth tile surfaces, stairways, outdoor sidewalk areas, loading docks, and wheelchair ramps are just a few examples of areas that might need extra attention.
Invest in accident prevention products: After reviewing existing safety protocols and evaluating high traffic areas, consider making investments in mats, runners, umbrella bag stands, crowd control systems, and other products designed to prevent slips, trips, and falls.
