The temperatures are now dropping and many businesses may be thinking of how they can keep their business premises safe this winter. Not only for customers and visitors but staff too. Businesses that are unprepared for the cold snap may face issues such as:
– personal injuries, accidents or vehicle damage on their business site
– difficulty receiving deliveries or sending products out
– office closure due to unsafe entranceways and paths
– unforeseen closure of their car parks resulting in loss of business, etc.
FGS Gritting, based in Kent offer gritting and snow clearance to businesses and organisations across the county and also supply salt on a bulk basis when it is needed. They advise that businesses, as well as schools, doctor surgeries, village halls, managed properties, etc. think ahead to the winter season each year and consider working with a reputable local gritting operator who can help keep their premises safe and operational.
“Check to ensure your chosen gritting provider will monitor weather conditions in your area and notify you of potential risks so they can grit the site or clear away any snow before it has any impact on their staff or customers. It’s also important to check whether they carry large salt stocks and ask if they operate outside of business hours to minimise disruption to the business and maximise effectiveness of the chosen service.”
