Don’t Get Caught Slipping

Why is it so important to have a workplace ice removal plan? Being proactive with a comprehensive strategy can help prevent winter slips, falls, and injuries. Hospital emergency rooms always have an increase in patients who have fallen after icy conditions. These injuries can range from a broken wrist or a sprained ankle to more severe fractures, internal injuries, and even life-threatening head trauma. Year after year, falls on icy walking surfaces are a leading cause of workplace injuries during the winter months. De-icing and anti-icing chemicals can help you ensure safe, snow-and-ice-free surfaces.

To better manage snow and ice, it’s helpful to understand the difference between de-icing and anti-icing. De-icing is the removal of snow, ice, and frost from affected surfaces via the application of ice-control products. Your assigned crew will perform de-icing after snow-removal operations to melt remaining snow and ice. Anti-icing, however, is the application of melting products to driving or walking surfaces to either help de-ice the surface, or as a preventative measure to lessen ice build-up and/or make it easier to remove. Anti-icing is useful because it creates safe winter conditions and is a cost-effective option. It’s important to know both methods since you cannot rely on one method for de-icing and anti-icing since each chemical and storm are different.

Whatever your de-icing or anti-icing challenge, we will save you time and enhance safety by providing a full suite of high-performing products and services to prevent snow and ice from bonding to parking lot and walkway surfaces. We deliver unique and highly-effective solutions that will give you peace of mind, knowing your surfaces are clear and free of danger.
