After a couple of months of unseasonably mild weather, Winter has finally made an appearance across the British Isles, with stormy, wet westerlies giving way to chilly northerlies, frosty mornings and picturesque landscapes. Yet, behind the facade of all this Winter beauty, as the nation's commuters discovered this morning, this also means black ice when driving, and slip, fall and trip hazards in ungritted company car parks and footpaths, a hidden risk that your employees can do without and that could put your company in tricky legal waters if it has not fulfilled its duty of care.
As a valued customer, access to our 24/7 help desk and the service updates are some of the extra attention to details that GRITIT™ offers that you won't find with smaller outfits, allowing speedy resolution of your immediate needs and keeping you fully informed of site visits as and when they happen.
GRITIT™ is the largest and first company in the UK to specialise exclusively in winter gritting and snow clearance. This generates more than 80% of our turnover and thanks to this focus we have built an enviable reputation for providing market leading winter solutions. Today we work with some of the UK’s leading companies, helping them to keep their sites, safe, compliant and fully operational during the winter months.
Our fixed cost services include proactive temperature-activated winter gritting, car park, footpath and facility snow clearance, both manual and mechanical, with a 24/7 operations centre backed up by full liability protection. We also provide grounds maintenance, pothole repairs and environmental services during the rest of the year.
A GRITIT grit box is the secret sauce to ensure that your site is always prepared for the unexpected, all winter long.
Gritting salt on its own works phenomenally well, but if you're in a hurry there are some amazing alternatives that can speed up your emergency de-icing.
