Vaughan Winter Grounds Maintenance and Safety Tips

Part of our Vaughan winter grounds maintenance service involves looking after many different types of commercial properties. We’ve been in the business long enough that we have been able to expand our services to include retail and office properties as well as warehouses and factories.

We pride ourselves on covering all the different areas of any building. A property owner might need snowplowing or snow relocation. Whether they need de-icing or any other aspect of commercial snow removal, we have them covered.

Safety is a Concern

One of the reasons that we are so good at this particular service is one of our primary concerns is safety.  Not only do our Vaughan winter grounds maintenance keep the outside of the commercial or business property safe for your clients, we also like to supply information on helping your workers.

That’s why we’ve put together several winter workplace tips that can help everyone get to the Spring in a safe manner.

Keep Your Hands Covered

There’s always the tendency to leave your gloves behind if you go out for a quick cigarette break or dash to the car because you’ve forgotten something. It’s not the thing to do in the winter for several reasons. First and foremost, it doesn’t take long to get frostbite on your fingers and hands.

Not only is that dangerous in itself, but it can multiply when you go back into the plant with numb digits and try and work any machinery you’ve been assigned too.

Besides, putting your hands in your pockets and then walking across a frozen parking lot puts you at risk of completely losing your balance if you slip.

For all of these reasons and some that you might be able to add yourself, the first tip is to always wear your gloves the minute you set foot outside.

Common Sense

If you stop and think about it for a minute, that first tip is really just about common sense. It’s the same kind of reasonable approach that we bring to our Vaughan winter grounds maintenance service.

The work that we do makes it easy for business owners to maintain a high level of productivity regardless of the weather. We leave nothing to chance when it comes to commercial snow removal. Because we want to do a thorough job, we begin with a safety analysis that we can proceed with our work in a safe and reasonable manner.

It doesn’t matter whether you need snow removal or snow relocation, we have both services at the ready.  It’s quite often the case that the most safe and reasonable thing to do is pile all the snow in an unused end of your parking lot. Because having all the right tools is the most important part of getting the job done, we have a fleet of snow removal equipment that’s modern and well-maintained.

Warm Up

This second tip that works side-by-side with our Vaughan winter grounds maintenance services might seem like a no-brainer, but there’s more to it than meets the eye. When we say that you need to warm up, we mean before you start to shovel any driveway or other area.

Doing a few stretching exercises before you head outside to clear the walkways and drive prevents injuries. If you don’t know any good stretches, marching in place or walking around the plant for a few minutes before you head outside is a good idea.

Watch Out for Water

Although this blog is basically about snow removal services, we wanted to add a few words about the dangers of running water. With the erratic freeze/thaw cycles we’ve been going through in recent years, anyone working outside during the winter months wants to be aware of running water.

Experts in the field caution that running water that’s only 6 inches deep can actually sweep you off your feet.
