Unfortunately, every year hundreds of Manitobans are injured from slipping on snow and ice, most commonly in and around parking lots and on sidewalks. These injuries can be life altering in some cases, but by following some simple safety practices you can help prevent injuries. Prairie Mountain Health in conjunction with other Health Region’s in Manitoba have been working together to promote safety tips that can help make winter walking a bit less treacherous. This is one of the resources you might see in and around healthcare facilities in Manitoba.
Take care out there – don’t let the ice get you down (on the ground)!
