Snow and ice pose real safety risks to personnel, whatever type of facility you maintain. Without sufficient preparation, precipitation can freeze and render your site inaccessible to both vehicles and pedestrians. Glendale’s expert team can ensure a gritting scheme is in place, keeping surfaces free from potentially dangerous snow and ice.
Whether it’s on footpaths, access roads or pavements, ice can pose a health and safety risk. By gritting these surfaces in advance of icy weather, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of accidents and potential injuries. As well as safeguarding personnel, gritting can also make incidents involving motor vehicles much less likely.

Sufficient gritting relies on more than simply distributing rock salt. Glendale begins by carefully monitoring the Met Office’s weather reports for each of your locations.

Our professionals can treat the following areas, helping to prevent the formation of ice:
Failing to plan sufficiently for winter can result in significant financial and operational implications for your business. If vehicles are unable to enter or leave your premises, deliveries and other logistical concerns can become problematic. Any amount of downtime or delayed starts to the working day can prove costly.
More important than any financial loss is the safety of staff, visitors and residents. Ice on walkways can cause pedestrians to fall and result in potentially serious personal injury, whereas the dangers of ice on roads are even more clear.
