Snow and Ice Removal Programs
In many areas of the country, we see large amounts of snowfall and ice over the winter months. In fact, not only does snow fall in many locations from November through March, it can be preceded, mixed with or followed by rain, freezing rain or sleet. Because of this, it’s critical to have a strong snow and ice removal program in place to keep employees safer this winter and beyond. While the weather conditions that increase the slipperiness of outdoor surfaces can’t be controlled, slips and falls can be avoided or reduced through careful attention to and maintenance of sidewalks, curbs and parking lots.
We know that developing a snow and ice removal program might seem like a daunting task, but United Heartland is here to help you every step of the way.
