Staying Safe in the “Big Freeze”

If you must enter out in the icy weather please ensure the following safety precautions:

  • Wrap up, wear layers and
  • Bulky coat.
  • Wear boots with non skid soles.
  • Wear a brightly coloured scarf or hat or reflective gear to ensure you are visible to motorists.
  • Take a walking stick with you and ensure the rubber tip is not worn out.
  • Avoid shortcuts and stay on main well lit footpaths.
  • Keep hands out of pockets and this decreases your centre of gravity and balance.
  • Watch were you are going.
  • Walk slowly and don’t rush.

Remember you can contact the HSE information line if you are experiencing difficulties 1850 241850.
