DURING LAST YEAR'S DIFFICULT WINTER [2013-2014], SLIPS AND FALLS ON ICE AND SNOW NEARLY DOUBLED, COMPARED WITH THE PREVIOUS WINTER [2012-2013]--AND ACCOUNTED FOR A THIRD OF ALL WORKERS'-COMPENSATION CLAIMS.  SOME COMPANIES OFFER HELP, TO BOTH REDUCE COSTLY WORKPLACE-ACCIDENTS AND KEEP EMPLOYEES SAFE.  ONE OF THOSE FIRMS IS "ACCIDENT FUND HOLDINGS"--WHICH SAYS THAT WINTER-RELATED SLIPS AND FALLS HAVE A MAJOR, NEGATIVE IMPACT ON AMERICAN BUSINESSES, EACH YEAR.  THAT RESULTS IN TIME OFF WORK, TEMPORARY-EMPLOYEE COSTS, OVERTIME FOR EXISTING EMPLOYEES, AND INCREASED INSURANCE-COSTS.  THEREFORE, EMPLOYERS NEED TO BE EXTRA-VIGILANT--AND EMPLOYEES SHOULD EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION--IN THE MONTHS AHEAD.  THIS INCLUDES BUSINESSES WORKING CLOSELY WITH THEIR INSURANCE-PROVIDER--AND INDIVIDUALS FOLLOWING SOME COMMONSENSE TIPS, TO AVOID INJURY:  WALK SLOWLY.  WEAR SLIP-RESISTANT FOOTWEAR.  BE PREPARED FOR BLACK ICE, AFTER MELTING OCCURS.  EXERCISE CAUTION, WHEN GETTING IN AND OUT OF VEHICLES.  AND LASTLY, WATCH FOR SLIPPERY FLOORS, WHEN ENTERING BUILDINGS.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "ACCIDENT-FUND-HOLDINGS"-DOT-COM.
