For businesses and other organisations, the wintry weather brings with it additional hazards to premises that must be managed. Slips and trips are the most common cause of winter work hazards.

Health and safety regulations state that arrangements must be in place to minimise dangers arising from snow and ice, which include slips, trips and falls. We’ll help by keeping your paths gritted and shovelling and clearing snow and ice to keep your walkways safe and your business running, even in the chilliest of weather.

All employers and businesses need to make sure that frequently used access paths which get covered with frost or snow are cleared, gritted or salted to help prevent people slipping.

Weedfree is ready to provide your business with gritting, shovelling and more to help keep your premises safe for both your employees and your customers.

Winter is a hazardous time. Having a professional and dedicated team on hand to deal with the safety issues in and around your grounds brings peace of mind and allows you to focus on your business. Call us today on 01623 653568 to find out how we can ensure your establishment is winter-ready.
