Snow help line
The safety of staff and visitors is paramount for any business or organization, but heavy snow or ice can leave the car-parks and footpaths around your site a potential slipping hazard. We understand the implications and impact that snow can bring whatever the size of your business or organization.
Mechanical and manual snow clearing
Ice Watch provides an effective snow clearing service to ensure a clear and safe path for pedestrians and motorists alike. By closely monitoring forecasts from the Met Office and Weatherquest we are able to identify areas where snow is most likely. This helps to avoid unnecessary callouts whilst still ensuring that those sites at risk are protected from the very worst of the winter elements.
Managing your winter risk strategy
Snow is unpredictable so if clearing is required we will carry this out in accordance with your instructions. We operate an out of hours help line enabling you to contact us 24/7, so when you need us we are at the end of the phone.
We will clear small areas and footpaths manually and for larger areas and car parks we will clear mechanically. Rest assured when snow is forecast we have everything in place so if clearing is required we are ready to act. When signing up for our gritting service you will be offered snow clearance.
Expect the unexpected and let us manage your winter risk strategy giving you peace of mind and leaving you free to do what you need to do.

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!
