WalkSafe: Don’t Let Ice and Snow Bring You Down



WalkSafe: Why Our Campaign Matters

Weather conditions are often a significant factor in slip and fall injuries. At United Heartland, we work with our customers proactively to help them avoid such incidents and improve workplace safety. With that in mind, our WalkSafe campaign offers valuable information and tips on winter weather-related safety covering a wide range of topics, including:

  • Preparing for winter weather
  • Winter weather advisories and employee communication systems
  • Snow and ice removal programs
  • Safe vehicle operation and working off-premises
  • Salting and surface treatments
  • The importance of wearing proper footwear
  • The importance of strong housekeeping practices
  • Falls from elevations
  • Slip, trip and fall assessments



In addition to our wide assortment of general WalkSafe materials,  we’ve developed risk-specific materials for our customers in the education and health care industries. We encourage everyone to use our library of materials throughout the winter, and subscribe to our Risk Connection e-blasts, which will provide important information related to WalkSafe on a regular basis.
