As I sit in my office during the winter months and look at the parking lot, I witness daily instances of near misses from people slipping on ice and snow. And it just so happens that slips, trips, and falls are one of our most frequent types of injury.
Now that we are in Winter and the weather has gotten colder, our exposure to these risks have increased. Ice and snow are a given, but even a thin layer of frost can create an unexpected slippery surface. Injuries from these accidents range from bruised tailbones to sprained body parts and broken bones.
Everyone can avoid a trip to the doctor or emergency room (and subsequent medical bills) by using a marvelous invention called Spare Spikes.
This traction footwear is a piece of rubber embedded with spikes that slip over shoes and boots. It takes only seconds to put on or remove—and are invaluable to all who wear them. So far I have not witnessed anyone slip or fall while wearing Spare Spikes.
This safety addition to your wardrobe can be found online for about $25 per pair. You can order your Spare Spikes through your DTI management team, though, for only $5 for the first pair and $15 for the second pair. I encourage you to protect yourself (and your wallet) this winter by making a low-cost investment in your safety.
