With weather in Britain set to drop below freezing. Now is the time to make preparations to reduce the risks of accidents to both you and others. Clearing access and walkways can reveal dangerous ice below layered snow and using substances such as grit or de-icing salt can remove this bottom layer of ice and reduce slip hazards. This can be achieved either with a snow plough or a shovel to remove excess snow safely.
Once the snow has been removed, the surface underneath can then be assessed to see if it needs gritting or de-icing. Using a grit bin, this can be either spread manually by hand or with a shovel.
