As we’ve already mentioned, if you own or occupy private land, you are responsible for ensuring that it can be safely accessed by staff and visitors. Ministers have repeatedly welcomed "public-spiritedness" and said "common sense" and "benefit of the doubt" should always prevail when considering litigation. If, however, you need faster results, use a specially formulated snow and ice melt or grit to remove the ice and add some traction to the surface.

Some products may be delivered straight to your door from one of our suppliers and these products will be labelled within the product description. The most common method used to de-ice floors is gritting as it is relatively cheap, quick to apply and easy to spread. Routes to large schools are gritting priorities for councils as they know how important keeping them open is both in terms of continuity of teaching for pupils and avoiding costly and disruptive childcare for parents. Our salt supplier is Compass Minerals- the operators of the UK's biggest rock salt mine at Winsford in Cheshire and Britain's largest supplier of natural rock salt.if there are no marked parking or walkways you need to decide where to grit/salt and use signage to make it very clear the routes to take. It is safe to put down on exterior surfaces and can be applied the night before, staying effective for up to seven days and down to minus 20 degrees C. Instead, councils try to find other solutions like supplying local grit bins for residents, liaising with parish councils and community groups to grit more residential or remote areas and working with farmers to clear rural areas. Tarmac should be laid on a dry day when temperatures are warm but not too hot so that it settles and hardens properly.

A court would have to deem someone as having been "wholly incompetent or irresponsible" for another to successfully sue them for injury.It relies on the action of vehicle tyres to be spread over the road, so requires traffic to be effective. If the time of grit spreading coincides with the rush hours, the gritters can be severely delayed and get stuck in traffic, so we always try to avoid gritting during rush hours wherever possible. Despite everyone’s best efforts there is no guarantee that roads will always be completely free of ice. Their attention to detail is very impressive and reassuring and we feel able to ask lots of questions without feeling silly.

Under the Occupiers Liability Act 1957 (amended in 1984), owners or occupiers of private land are legally required to ensure safe access for staff and visitors, which extends to clearing ice and snow. Treatment of roads and pedestrian areas with grit is carried out to prevent frost and ice forming and reduce the build up of snow to help provide a safe passage on the highest priority roads and pedestrian areas. It is hard to put down on paper how that made us feel - we like everyone else felt totally at sea, which way to turn, what to do? When you are in the grip of winter and temperatures plummet, knowing the correct wa y to grit a path or road can be a life saver.Spread the salt generously and evenly over areas that have a high level of footfall, or busy roads using a Salt Spreader. Salt bins (grit boxes) or grit piles may be provided for use by the public, on a self-help basis, on roads with light traffic or streets which aren’t usually gritted, as long as the necessary criteria are met.

Check the box above and we'll sign you up to receive our Health and Safety Newsletters, as well as sending you a link to our 'Grit and Salting during the winter' summary. Road surface temperature and whether the road is wet or dry determines what grit treatment is needed - not the air temperature. Ahead of a sub-zero night, gritting ideally needs to take place after rain but before freezing as grit spread on ice needs to then be worked into it by moving traffic to make it thaw. As a Plumbing and Heating business, we were able to carry on working during the lockdown but only for responding to emergencies. It's for exactly the same reason why salty sea water freezes at a lower temperature than fresh water.A House of Lords ruling (Goodes v East Sussex County Council – 2000) concluded that a highway authority had an absolute duty to keep the fabric of the highway in a good state of repair so as to render it safe for ordinary traffic at all seasons of the year, but that did not include a duty to remove the formation or accumulation of ice and snow on the road. However, if grit is left untouched it can block drains, and may even pose a danger to pedestrians and drivers. It is important to do this both inside and outside of the workplace, as the effect of light changes during the day. We don't know if this is more than councils have ever had, but it's the most in recent years since detailed national figures started being collated.
