If you are just starting to think about making a personal injury claim with a lawyer in Arbroath for a slip, trip or fall on some ice or snow, then you are probably also thinking about how your accident could have been prevented.

What could have been done to prevent your accident?
We all know that ice and snow are slippery, and that steps have to be taken to prevent accidents. In order to prevent a personal injury case arising, many organisations that run public spaces take the following steps:
- Have a comprehensive plan in place to deal with icy and snowy conditions so that everyone knows what should be done when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
- Thoroughly risk assess all the outdoor walkways and areas where employees and members of the public will be walking. This is carried out in order to identify those surfaces that are likely to present a hazard.
- Take steps to reduce slip hazards, such as applying grit early in the evening before the frost settles. Grit may be applied early in the morning before employees and members of the public arrive.
- In very slippery areas, it may be best to prevent access altogether until the frost has gone – this will need appropriate signs and barriers.
