Wintry weather is arriving and slips and trips accidents are especially frequent at this time of year.

With low temperatures and less daylight, winter can make surfaces perilous, and slip and trip accidents increase significantly.

There are plenty of seasonal factors to consider when avoiding these sorts of accidents.  Poor lighting, excess water from rain and even gritting can all cause problems.

Visit the HSE website for more information on Lighting, Gritting, Wet and Icy Conditions.
