"As winter is an annual season, there is no getting away from the fact that with winter comes added dangers caused by cold and freezing conditions."
TDR realised Winter Maintenance was a sector with opportunities. This is why we took the decision to adapt and now offer a Winter Maintenance service. As winter is an annual season, there is no getting away from the fact that with winter comes added dangers caused by cold and freezing conditions. Snow, ice and other hazardous weather conditions can be bad news for employees and clients alike. We offer our services to the local authorities and private sector. Being located centrally in Essex gives us that advantage of a quick response. Our services include:
An occupant of a commercial property is obligated under the management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, including the recent Slip & Trip clause, to appraise risks and take measures to care for employees and customers from the dangers that ice and snow can bring. Failing to do this may consequently end in legal action being engaged by any injured person(s) who have slipped on an employer’s icy grounds.
“Slip and trip accidents increase during the winter season, as the cold weather spells cause ice and snow to build up on paths. There are effective actions that you can take to reduce the risk of a slip or trip. Regardless of the size of your site, always ensure that regularly used walkways are promptly tackled.”
