Here in the interior of Alaska, snow and ice are part of our daily lives for nearly seven months of the year. Walking around campus can sometimes be challenging without unexpectedly slipping and falling onto the hard frozen ground. There are many reasons why people slip and fall on ice and snow, and all are preventable. With a little planning, caution, and proper footwear, you can remain upright during our sometimes treacherous winter conditions.  

Winter slip and fall injuries tend to be UAF’s most frequently reported accident. To help prevent these injuries, and the associated insurance costs, UAF offers traction devices (ice cleats) to all employees, free of charge. These ice cleats slip over existing footwear and are very effective at helping prevent falls on ice and snow. We carry several different brands in various sizes to accommodate most any shoe or boot. If we don’t have it, we’ll get it, at no cost to the employee!

UAF employees can contact our office at 474-5476/474-2763, or stop by our office location at 1855 Marika Road, Fairbanks, to procure a free pair of ice cleats. UAF extended sites (rural campuses) can order ice cleats for their employees and be reimbursed through the Loss Prevention (LP) Program
