Slipping on ice can be a dangerous game. Make sure ice doesn’t get the best of you this winter –

  • Keep a look out for black ice. While that pavement may look like it’s just wet, it could be slick ice waiting to catch you off guard. Know the condition of the ground you’re about to walk for a great start to staying upright.
  • Prepare for ice when you can. Salt and sand are your friends during icy situations. If you know there’s a chance of ice, stock up on road salt so you can melt some of that ice away and attack the problem at the source. It’s also good to have sand on hand to give slick ice traction when needed.
  • Wear the right shoes. When it’s icy outside, the most fashionable footwear in town is your winter-weather boots. Double-check your soles for good treads to keep you striding in style.
  • We’ve got your back. Even when you take precautions, falls happen. If you get hurt, Quartz MobileBack will help you get back on your feet. MobileBack is an app-based program that offers easy-to-follow exercises, helpful tips and motivational coaching to help relieve back pain. For more information and to sign up, visit
