Do You Have A Snow Control Plan For Winter?

22 Dec 2017

Winter is almost here, which means that snow will soon be upon us. As such, it’s time to start thinking about your snow control plan for winter, especially if you are a business.

A snow control plan is just what it sounds like—a plan for how you will keep both snow and ice under control during the winter season.

If you’re a business, you have to think about all areas of your business, from the front of your business to any parking lots, and you must also plan to monitor your business on a frequent schedule given an influx of customers or such type of events.

Why You Need a Snow Control Plan For Winter

Whether you own a home or have a business, a snow control plan is important for several different reasons:

  • Safety and Liability

    Snow and ice jeopardizes the safety of visitors, customers, mail carriers, and so on.

    According to Stats Canada, over 42,000 workers are injured every year due to fall accidents, with the majority (66%) of these falls occurring from slips and trips.

    Many people do not realize that slips and falls can result in serious injuries. This can result in serious liability issues, both for private homeowners and businesses alike.

    A snow control plan factors in how to take care of snow as efficiently as possible so that visitors, employees, and customers are kept safe, and you are protected from any liability issues that could result when snow is left to build up and ice begins to form.

  • Convenience and Efficiency

    People are busy; the same is true for businesses. Businesses have a lot to attend to on any given day; it’s important to spend business time on high-value items and allow the professionals to take care of snow and ice so that you spend your time driving your business forward.

  • Curb Appeal

    When snow is left to pile up, the curb appeal of your home and business begins to go down. Businesses look less than professional when they let maintenance slide, which is definitely not good for business.

A snow control plan ensures that you have a plan in place for keeping your entryways, parking lots, and so on clear during the winter months.
