Avoid Winter Slips and Falls

December 10, 2017

Slips and falls increase when inclement weather occurs. Be careful when walking on sidewalks, steps, and parking lots on campus.

Areas may have wet leaves, snow, and ice. Facilities staff does a good job of keeping sidewalks and steps clear of debris; however, you may still encounter problem areas. If you notice an area that needs additional attention, notify Facilities at 703-993-2525, so the issue can be resolved.

Review University Policy 2207 to learn about inclement weather and related topics. Visit the Office of Risk Management website to review slip and fall prevention tips. 

Contact Risk Management at or 703-993-2599 with questions.
