  • Expect the unexpected
  • Take responsibility for fixing, removing or avoiding hazards in your path
  • Wear sturdy shoes or boots
  • Avoid baggy or loose pants you could trip over

  • Wipe you’re feet when you come in from rain or snow
  • Report or replace inadequate lighting.

Be constantly alert for and remove or go around obstructions in your path.
