Nationwide gritting service
Whether you are a single site or multi-site business or organisation, we understand the importance of remaining operational in ice and snow. Winter brings the challenge of ensuring your site(s) will be safe for all users, which is an added pressure you could well do without! That’s why we’ve developed our service over the years to accommodate many scenarios. Ice Watch are part of the winter risk strategy for many FM and property management companies nationwide as well as single site businesses and organisations. Whatever the size of your site(s) we can help you manage your winter risk strategy, limiting the burden of responsibility for slips and trips due to ice and snow. You have a duty of care to customers and employees alike as we have a duty to you.
With Ice Watch you have a nationwide gritting service with local operators so we are never far away. Our teams have the necessary equipment (with back up measures in place), materials and training to ensure every requested area is cleared of ice and snow. At any one time, we have at least 1 year’s stock of materials available. We have never run out of salt as we hold significant regional stockpiles as well as at our central warehouse, and all our dedicated operators hold stocks themselves. Our text and email notification procedures keep you fully aware of forecasted icy conditions and we then organise gritting at the appropriate time to manage the risk.
Never missed a day’s gritting
Your dedicated account manager will be proactive in all aspects of our service and will ensure preventative measures are taken to keep your sites operational at all times. We are proud of the full service operation we have built over the years and with a clear understanding of our clients’ needs and expectations, you can relax in the knowledge that you’re in the safest of hands when winter takes hold.

We have a clear understanding of environmental variations, enabling us to deliver the exact amount of material required for the conditions. This makes our gritting services something you can rely on.
We closely monitor specific data from the Met Office and Weatherquest to identify areas where snow is most likely, ensuring our snow clearing services are deployed at the correct time.
With nationwide winter maintenance provided 7 days a week and a tailor made service to each specific site, we tackle the duty of care towards the general public and your employees head on.
As one of the longest standing gritting contractors in the country, serving the public and private sectors, we have the experience for complex requirements including security, access and timing.
From a business point of view, it makes sense to start developing a winter maintenance plan NOW to ensure everything is in place BEFORE colder climes set in. Taking care of your winter gritting and snow clearance requirements during summer means one less thing on your ‘to do’ list later on in the year.
At the moment we’re enjoying more clement conditions, making it easy to become complacent about severe weather conditions. However, winter WILL arrive and bad winters do have a significant impact on businesses where there has been little or no planning. Business continuity experts have been advising companies to have a winter risk strategy in place for some years now, but only a small percentage of companies do. Business continuity considers many factors and when we speak about ‘global warming’, what we are actually acknowledging is an increase in the frequency of ‘extreme weather’.
As an employer there is a clear duty of care. Employers must ensure their employees, and anyone else who could be affected by their work (such as visitors, members of the public, patients etc), are kept safe from harm and that their health is not at risk. This means slips and trips risks must be controlled to ensure people do not slip, trip and/or fall.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Do you have a proactive strategy in place should such an incident occur?
- Do you have the resources for it?
- Can you meet the costs of a claim sufficiently?
- What about the subsequent loss of business or reputation?
Ice Watch can help you prepare for extreme weather by implementing an effective, efficient and economic winter maintenance plan so that you can get on with your core business activity. Putting an effective winter maintenance plan in place NOW could even have a positive effect on your next insurance premium, helping your bottom line!
