Keeping Your Employees Safe This Winter

    Group|Environmental 07/12/2017

    According to the Health & Safety Executive, over 40% of all specified non-fatal workplace injuries are attributed to a slip, trip or a fall.  With each individual case resulting in up to 8 lost wokring days.  In the autumn and winter months, the likelihood of slips and trips is dramatically increased.  The dark, wet and cold conditions pose extra risks to your staff and visitors alike.

    Top Tips to Stay Safe

    1. Identify all potential risk areas where staff and visitors are likely to walk and highlight those priority routes that are likely to be affected by ice, frost and snow
    2. Identify who is in charge of putting the Winter Safety Plan into action should it be required
    3. Check your winter safety equipment?  Do you have the right equipment, is it in perfect working order?  Does your team require PPE in order to implement your plan?
    4. Keep a close eye on the weather forecast and implement your plans should the temperates fall to 2.2°C.  Remember grit salt doesn't work instantly and needs sufficient time to dissolve.  The best times to grit are early evening before the frost has time to settle.
