Slip-sliding away

Post by Waterbaby » Tue Nov 28, 2017 10:20 am


Mmmmm - no handrail on these outside stairs of accommodation, ice and snow cleared this morning (-8 C) and bottom step has rubber mat which has no grip nor is secured :cry:

Small gully running along too, all-in-all a slip-trip hazard and worse if you didn't realise the gully dip is there too.

Near miss trip last evening with one of the personnel (no injury)

Hi Waterboy,

A good spot - lucky that it was a near miss and not an accident. At least now further control measures can be put in place before an injury is caused. .salut
