Snow and gritting services pay off
26th February, 2015
Just when you thought the worst of the winter weather was behind us, Mother Nature gave us a reminder yesterday that we are yet to see the last of the snow this winter. With parts of Scotland and northern England experiencing several inches of the white stuff on Tuesday, forecasters have reminded us that whilst meteorologically spring is set to arrive on Sunday, there may still be more snow to come.
“Spring technically starts on 1st of March, however this doesn't necessarily mean that this is the last big snow fall we have seen this winter” - Met Office Spokesman.
Homes and businesses were forced to shovel tonnes of snow, with several main roads left almost impassable due to snow and ice. The unpredictability of snow means it always pays to be prepared for the unexpected. At Ice Watch we provide a 24/7 nationwide gritting and snow clearance service to reduce the impact of snow and ice on your business.
It goes without saying that snow and ice can create hazards for both pedestrians and motorists attempting to navigate your business premises. Working in conjunction with our clients we develop bespoke winter gritting plans to ensure their safety. From small pathways to larger sites and car parks, our team have the necessary equipment, materials and training to ensure that your business is adequately protected.
It does not matter how big or small your business is; heavy snowfall can have serious implications on your ability to continue trading. Not only does it put the safety of staff and visitors at risk, but it impacts upon vehicle traffic being able to continue operating as usual. By closely monitoring the latest forecasts from the Met Office and WeatherQuest we are able to provide an effective snow clearance service at the first sign of danger.
We have a team of expert analysts who have been trained to quickly interpret and cross-check the data we receive from the Met Office and WeatherQuest.
