If you run a business, you’re probably more than aware of the compensation culture that’s prevalent in Britain today. With the risk of people suing or make a claim if they have an accident at work, it’s essential to make your premises as secure as possible.
Here at Seton, we know that the right safety equipment could keep you out of the courts, so it’s worth taking a look at some of the winter products we offer.
The temperature can drop at any point during the dark months, which is why we provide a wide range of items to keep snow and ice under control. Our de-icing salt and grit can prevent slips and is ideal for use on car parks pathways and steps. Not only does it defrost large areas quickly, but it also prevents refreezing, helping to keep public and highly-used areas safe for longer. It’s supplied in convenient 25kg bags which can be stored on pallets, or you could invest in a durable salt and grit bin.
One of the best ways to keep employees, visitors and members of the public free from harm is to highlight safety issues with winter signs. These offer clear visual guidance and instruction, and should be placed in areas where they will be easily seen. Of course, you can’t stop the snow from falling or the rain from pouring, but you can warn people of hazards as and when they arise. Our winter signs are specially designed for dangerous conditions and can also be used to identify important equipment.
If you’re not sure which products you need, or require a little helping hand, our well-stocked winter kits could come in useful. They each contain an array of items and are great to use at work or home. Our car park winter kit, for instance, includes a 170-litre grit bin, 25kg of deicing salt, an 18kg salt spreader and a large shovel. This will help you get through the dark spell with ease and ensure you have everything necessary to combat harsh weather conditions.
As every business is different, you must carry out a risk assessment to identify anything that could cause a significant risk to health during winter. Once this has been done, take a look at Seton’s product range and start to make your premises as safe as it can be.
