Snow clearing & gritting
Essential Winter weather services
By law businesses are required to provide a safe environment for their staff. Rather than wait until the bad weather arrives, why not call us and plan ahead, so when the snow arrives – so do we, which means you will be able to relax and let us to the work for you.
When the snow finally arrives – it always seems to take us all by surprise! Why not be organised and contact us for a clearance quote in advance – that way when those white flakes begin to fall, you will have peace of mind so that you can relax and let us do the snow clearance for you!
As beautiful as snow can look, compacted snow may turn to ice, especially if it gets compressed. Compacted snow, which turns to ice, is difficult to treat effectively with grit, it is therefore important to ensure that areas have been gritted ahead of the snow being driven over, being compacted or in the early stages of snow falling.
HSE statistics show pedestrian slipping and tripping to be the most common cause of injuries in UK workplaces, they account for the highest number of work related major injuries and occur across all industry sectors. As a result, the Health and Safety Commission has included slips and trips as a priority topic in the Government’s Health and Safety campaign, ‘Slips and Trips’. http://www.hse.gov.uk/slips.
Simply Green provides a Winter Gritting service and are available 24 hours a day; seven days per week during the winter months. The winter gritting service is flexible and therefore is personalised to your business; arrangements can be made such as structuring the areas covered so that less vulnerable areas are excluded or included as necessary on a day/nightly basis.
