With the recent arrival of winter, Environmental Health and Safety would like to offer some seasonal safety tips.

  • Dress in layers
  • Wear an appropriate winter coat, hat, and gloves
  • Wear appropriate footwear when traveling
    • Flat rubber soled shoes with traction are ideal
  • Remember flooring can be slick even when a wet floor sign is not present
  • During inclement weather remember to give yourself extra time to make it to your destinations
  • Give yourself extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you when driving
  • Always clear your vehicle's windows of frost, ice, or snow
    • Don't forget your head lights and tail lights
  • Make sure your emergency kit is properly stocked
  • A collapsible shovel is better than salt for clearing the path for your tires
  • If you fall on campus please complete an Accident/Injury/Illness/Near-Miss Form (PDF)
    • Submit to Environmental Health and Safety Biological Sciences II Room 047
