Clearing snow and ice from your premises

Updated: Dec 12, 2022

With us now well into winter, snow and ice is a real probability. As business owners, we have to ensure that the risk of slips, trips, falls and other accidents are minimised.

The Health and Safety Executive have useful information on how to clear snow and ice, and on gritting for businesses. This can be found here.

Remember if you are expecting your employees to work outside clearing snow and ice or doing their normal jobs, make sure they wear the correct PPE. See our earlier article on working outdoors in cold weather.

If you want guidance on clearing snow and ice from around your home, the Met Office have a handy Snow Code to help you. Click here for details.
