Steps and stairs – Reducing the risk

Ascending or descending stairs / slopes which are covered with snow / ice generates the greatest risk of falls. There are no risk free approaches - it’s all about reducing the risk.

-       Clear snow from steps so that ice does not form

-       Gritting steps helps by increasing your grip and reducing ice

-       Use a handrail (if available) increasing your support

-       Take your time

-       Consider shoe chains
