Wet surfaces always present a hazard for you, your co- workers and our customers. Water can come from rain, spills, wet winter conditions and activities 
that require the use of water, resulting in slippery conditions. Slipping on a wet surface can result in bruises, strains and sprains, lacerations, fractures, head trauma, and even fatality. And all that stacks up to lost wages, too. Each job site is different, so the way you adapt your workplace to wet surfaces will be designed on a case-by-case basis. However, following these general guidelines is a good start. * Clean up spills immediately. * Use Caution signs to clearly identify when a surface is wet or likely to become wet and remove the signs as soon as the surface is dry. *  Barricade affected areas where possible. * Check for equipment and electrical currents that may not be grounded and wires that are not insulated. * Use floor mats at entrances and exits of buildings to track in less water from outside. * Whenever possible, work under covered areas during wet weather days. * Ensure good drainage to prevent standing water and speed drying. * Be sure to wear shoes with slip-resistant soles, and clean them if they become muddy. * Report any spills or wet areas that you notice to you supervisor.
