At Ice Watch, doing things that look after the environment makes sense. Although we are a nationwide gritting company, we ensure our travelling miles are kept to a minimum by siting all our operators and equipment less than 10 miles from the sites they look after. Our equipment is calibrated to make sure that the optimum amount of de-icing salt is used, reducing waste of resources and budgets. We choose our equipment with the environment in mind so we can protect walkways and paths without damaging grass verges, flora and fauna.
Ice Watch - The Economic Solution
The British weather is notoriously changeable and risks from ice and snow are best assessed by localised short range weather forecasting. It is difficult for businesses and organisations to monitor the weather in depth to action gritting within timescales required to manage the risk. With our gritting service it means that you do not have to monitor weather forecasts 24/7. No labour costs for out of hours gritting and snow clearance. There will be no equipment or salt to buy and store and no training costs - so you save time and money.

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!
