Squeaking is the sound of hazard in the workplace, in fact, slip-and-fall accidents represent the majority of workplace accidents. 

But Dominion Energy is trying to prevent those accidents with new technology. 

According to Curt Grimes, Senior Safety Specialist at Dominion Energy, "We have in the past instructed our employees to walk like a duck and that was the preferred method until this new technology came out and now we tell our employees to march like a soldier."

The new technique of “walking like a soldier” helps employees to stay safe by forcing more of the bottom of the foot, to make contact with the slippery surface; and it proves to be efficient, even when ping pong balls are being thrown at you.

After a few or a lot of slips and trips, our reporter and the rest of the Dominion staff learned new techniques to improve their stability and reduce the risk of falling.
