Have you thought about adding liquids to your snow operations? It can be a little daunting but the overall benefit far outweighs the learning curve.
A number of years ago, I attended a SnowEx seminar by Daniel Gilliland. He is a pioneer in bringing liquids to the forefront in Ontario. I learned so much through his presentation and I want to share what I learned with you.
There are four main reasons to use liquid strategies for Snow and Ice Control:
- Improve safety outcomes
- Reduce the environmental impact/property damage and the amount of chlorides going into the environment.
- Drastically reduce your materials, especially if you make your own salt brine.
- Using liquids to anti-ice prevents snow and ice from bonding to the pavement which results in a significant reduction to post-storm labour, equipment, and material clean up costs.
Did You Know?
- Slip & Fall claims related to winter maintenance account for more lawsuits than in any other sector except auto accidents.
