FAIRBANKS — The Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development has some advice at the back the latest edition of its “Trends” publication: use ice cleats.

“Of all the items available for enhancing personal safety during winter months — such as hats, gloves, coats and boots — ice cleats are probably the most overlooked,’ the brief item stated in the publication’s “Safety Minute.”

“When used in the right situation, ice cleats bring a substantial amount of sure-footedness, nearly canceling out the slippery effect of an icy surface,” it reads. “However, people often avoid using ice cleats until they find themselves painfully on their backs.”
