According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Fatal falls, slips, or trips took the lives of 668 workers in 2012”. That number was down from 2011 but 668 lives is 668 to many. You’re going to need something to keep you upright on the icy-ist of surfaces. You need ice traction.Ice traction devices are designed to give you solid footing whether walking, climbing or driving. There are types that cover the sole of the foot, whereas others cover just the heel. You can get them with studs or with a channeled design that keeps the snow and ice from retaining to the grip.Features include reflective striping for added visibility like in the Devisys, or easy-to-apply
webbing/hook & loop straps like the Trex’s 6315 (Seen above).

The potential hurt to you and your team, whether you slip and fall walking to your car, or do something more painful like falling down a ladder or slipping and dropping tools on your self, should be more than enough incentive to get you and your team setup with ice traction products, today.
