Ice Gripper Program

As MSU is located in Montana we have a long winter season, which results in snowy and icy walkways. To help MSU personnel stay safe while walking in the winter time, Safety & Risk Management provides free ice grippers to employees. Ice grippers are the equivalent for studded tires for your feet. These devices are similar to slippers that slide over the outside of your shoe and can be easily put on and removed.
