Winter Conditions and Employer Responsibility
Are you aware of your responsibilities as an employer during winter conditions? How does snow and ice effect your responsibility as a business owner? It is important to understand how a road gritter service can benefit you and avoid unnecessary health and safety risks on your property.
As stated under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974:
Employers have to ensure that their employees and anyone else who could be affected by their works (such as visitors, members of the public, patients, etc.) are kept safe from harm and that their health is not affected. This means slips and trips risks must be controlled to ensure people do not slip, trip and fall.

Weather forecasts are only a guide and not always correct. Due to our extensive expertise and local knowledge, we can make decisions regarding what needs to be done. The potential issues due to freezing weather and icy conditions can be greatly reduced by gritting the roads as a precautionary measure before any frost has time to form. This usually happens in the early hours of the morning or during the evening.
Winter gritting is an insurance that the safety of people and movement of traffic are kept at satisfactory levels. Contact Dundee Gritting Services for gritting contractors in Dundee and we can discuss which package is best suited to you.
