Snow Equipment Prep & Training: Your Winter Landscape Survival Kit
November 30, 2023
Winter is coming, and with it comes the inevitable challenges of snow and ice management. For landscape professionals and property managers, preparing for the winter season is crucial. In this blog, we’ll delve into the essentials of snow equipment preparation and training, your ultimate winter landscape survival kit.
The Importance of Preparation
When winter storms hit, being unprepared is not an option. Snow and ice can create hazardous conditions, affecting both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Proper preparation ensures that you can respond quickly and effectively, minimizing risks and disruptions.
Snow Equipment Essentials
Snow Blowers and Plows
These are the workhorses of snow removal. Make sure to inspect these machines for any wear and tear from the previous season. Check the blades, belts, and bolts to ensure everything is in working condition.
Salt spreaders are vital for ice management. Calibrate your spreaders to ensure they distribute salt evenly. Also, make sure to stock up on ice melt products well before the first snowfall.
Shovels and Hand Tools
Don’t underestimate the importance of manual snow removal tools. Shovels, ice choppers, and other hand tools are essential for clearing sidewalks and other areas that machines can’t reach.
Visibility can be significantly reduced during snowfall. High-visibility clothing ensures that operators can be easily seen, reducing the risk of accidents.
Slips and falls are common in icy conditions. Invest in quality protective footwear with excellent grip and insulation.
Training: The Human Element
Equipment is only as good as the people operating it. Training our team is crucial for both efficiency and safety.
Ensure that all team members are familiar with the equipment they’ll be using. This includes not just how to operate it, but also basic troubleshooting and maintenance.
Training should also cover essential safety protocols, such as what to do in case of equipment failure or other emergencies.
