Salting the number one way of preventing injuries associated with parking lot accidents, falls and slipping to and from your place of business. It let's your clients and your employees know that you care and can save you money associated with work related accidents, lost time and even law suits.
We take it very seriously. Salt spreading is a crucial part of any snow removal service. The salt helps to melt ice and keeps water from refreezing on roadways, walkways and parking lots. When applied before an impending storm, salt helps prevent surfaces from icing over during light snowstorms. It should also be applied after a storm has passed in order to help prevent the rain or snow from forming a thick layer of ice. It is important to know when to spread salt and how much to apply to achieve the best results.
Using salt as part of a snow removal plan helps maintain the safety of people who have to traverse parking lots and walkways. Ice-covered flat surfaces are probably more dangerous than icy hills, slopes and steps because pedestrians often underestimate the risk of walking on these slick surfaces. You may be liable for any injury that occurs during a slip and fall accident on your property.
Motorists may not be able to access a parking lot if a sloping entranceway is covered with ice. Keeping the parking lot striping visible enables drivers to navigate and park more safely. An ice-free surface reduces the potential of cars colliding into each other in the parking lot because their tires will have better contact with the road surface. Studies show that road conditions are the number one factor in winter accidents and that the use of road salt reduces collisions. Visitors generally avoid places where they may get into an accident in the parking lot or slip on ice. A well-maintained parking lot demonstrates a commitment to safety.
