Slips, trips and falls accounted for 24% of Bison workplace injuries in 2014 and they continue to be the leading cause of workplace injury year over year. To tackle this issue, Bison recently conducted a trial of the Devisys Traction Cleats, which are designed to prevent accidents on slippery surfaces. I spoke with several Bison Transport Drivers who tested these traction cleats and who also recently dealt with a workplace injury because of a fall or slip. The most common question Drivers had about the cleats was whether or not they were going to be easy to wear while driving. “They were very comfortable and easy to put on,” said one Driver. “I would put them on before I left the house and wear them all day.” He also mentioned "they were unnoticeable while driving and didn’t cause any problems". In terms of how the cleats actually worked, everyone agreed they did their job very well and significantly improved traction on slippery surfaces.
