LANSING, Mich./PRNewswire/ -- During last year's difficult winter, slips and falls on ice and snow accounted for nearly one third of all workers' compensation claims in Michigan

that resulted in lost time from work, according to Accident Fund Insurance Company of America.
Winter-related slips and falls claims doubled in 2013-2014 over the previous year, representing 32 percent of all Michigan workers' compensation claims.
"These claims have a significant negative impact on American businesses each year, resulting in time off work, temporary employee costs, overtime for existing employees and increased insurance costs," said Mike Britt, president of Accident Fund Insurance Company of America. "To avoid these costs this winter, employers need to be extra vigilant and employees should exercise extreme caution in the months ahead. Although we can't change the weather, we can do much more to prepare and keep workers safe, beginning with some common-sense reminders."
