With the nights getting longer and the temperature dropping, it is important to get your business site prepared for the winter.
With the arrival of the cold, issues arise, bringing with it icy and dangerous conditions.
Keeping the workplace safe
On site winter maintenance is vital for the safety of visitors and your own workforce.
Difficult walking and driving conditions are expected this winter, so preparation and preventive measures are imperative to take, for the health and safety of everyone.
Preparing for the challenges of winter
In the UK, on average, according to The Met Office, we have 33 snow days a year which can cause huge disruption if not planned for.
This can lead to potential hazardous driving and walking conditions, which could impact pedestrians, visitors and on-site workers alike.
Site survey and risk assessment
When we undertake any service contracts, (unless you come to us through Ground Control), our process begins with a visit to your site and/or premises to meet the appropriate people, walk around, undertake a brief risk assessment, talk about your requirements and the exact nature of the tasks you wish to be carried out, when, how often and in what circumstances.
We know every customer is different, which is why we tailor our service, to meet your requirements.
We formulate a plan of action, alone, or in conjunction with your staff, based on providing sufficient winter maintenance to keep your site and/or premises fully accessible throughout the cold season.
Gritting service and snow clearance
We work both independently and alongside Ground Control . We are able to provide a highly professional gritting and snow/ice clearance service to the best possible standards, for all our clients, with a same/next day 24 hour call out service and the very latest technology to support all our operations and communications, on the ground and in the office. We aim to deliver the most effective and efficient service possible, covering all corners of South Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
Winter maintenance vehicles and equipment
We use the latest heavy-duty winter service vehicle, snow removers and grit/salt spreaders. Receiving instant daily, weekly, monthly weather forecasts, we can prepare our clients site for the adverse weather conditions, usually the day of or the day before, long before workers/visitors arrive onsite.
We calculate the required amount of grit needed and quickly assess the dangerous areas and get to them first.
