    Chilling Stats... Canada Post Needs You to Help Reduce Slips and Falls During Icy Winter Weather - Market Wire (press release)
    Statistics show a high number of slips, trips and involving delivery employees occur on residential and business properties where ice and snow can create hazardous conditions. By motivating the public to keep their stairs and walkways clear, the campaign will contribute to Canada Post's goal of reducing accidents. In 2007, Canada Post mail delivery personnel experienced more than 1,500 on-the-job injuries related to the weather. Preliminary 2008 figures show no decrease in the number or severity of incidents. These injuries not only affect the workplace, but also impact employees' personal lives and even one incident is too many.
