MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, September 30, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ — Are you looking to prepare your business for winter? If so, it’s wise to stock up on safety supplies before the cold spell hits.

- Snow shovels, snow ploughs and de-icing equipment deemed essential

- Companies advised to carry out a risk assessment ahead of winter

According to the site – which provides a wealth of safety information for both small and large organisations – snow shovels, snow ploughs and de-icing equipment are well-worth purchasing and are a great investment for any business. Why? Well, because they keep pathways, car parks and walkways safe and can be reused time after time.

Matt Hornsby, a spokesman for the site, said: “As the nights draw in and the leaves fall from the trees, one thing is clear; winter’s on its way, so it’s important to prepare for the chilly months ahead. This might mean buying a sandbag or two, or it might mean investing in a grit bin for when the weather takes a turn for the worse.”

He added: “Many winter safety products can be bought online, so it’s worth browsing the net for the latest snow shovel or snow plough. These come in a wide range of shapes and sizes and will help to keep your business in action if we get a sudden downfall. The weather’s notoriously unpredictable in the UK, so there’s no harm in being prepared.”

As well as stocking up on supplies, whatishealthandsafety.co.uk has also encouraged employers to carry out a risk assessment of their premises. This, they claim, will make everything safer for the winter months and will ensure offices, factories and other buildings can withstand hazardous conditions.

Hornsby said: “A risk assessment is a quick and simple way to detect hazards. It’s an important part of business, so employers should take the time to jot down any noticeable problems. These can then be fixed in due course and the whole workforce can be kept safe.”

Winter essentials are available online from a variety of e-tailers, and can be found in many large chain high-street stores.
