Road and Car Park Gritting, Snow Clearance and Winter Maintenance

 

It has never been as vital to make sure your footpaths, car parks and access roads are safe when temperatures fall to freezing or below or when we get snowfall. Snow and ice can cause massive disruption to any site, and with the huge potential for financial loss and injury to staff or visitors it is essential that it is managed and controlled. Get rid of the headache this winter by letting Countrywide Grounds Maintenance deal with and reduce that risk for you with their National gritting and snow clearance services.

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

Employers have to 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 affected. This means slip and trips risks must be controlled to ensure people do not slip, trip and fall. People must be able to move around safely.

 

Slips and trips are responsible for:

 

Over a third of all reported major injuries;

20% of over-3-day injuries to employees;

2 fatalities per year;

50% of all reported accidents to members of the public that happen in workplaces;

Cost to employers £512 million per year (lost production and other costs);

Cost to health service £133 million per year;

Incalculable human cost;

More major injuries in manufacturing and in the service sectors than any other cause.
