It is that time Ohioans…the dead of winter is here. With it comes snow and ice…tons of snow and ice, for months on end. While you may relish in winter activities during your personal time, this season can reek havoc on your business, especially when it comes to slips and falls. This my friend, is why you need rock salt delivery for your business.

These sorts of accidents are the #1 cause of accidental injury that comes with an average price tag of $24,000!  When tallied the total dollars lost by US businesses for failing in prevention is $13-$14 million dollars each year.  Slips and falls, either outside or in, can be blamed for a large amount of injuries to both your employees and customers.

Ice tends to hide under snow, eliminating the ability of pedestrians to visually avoid the danger areas.
The key component to limiting outdoor slip and fall potential in your business is to thoroughly coat walking areas with rock salt. pay close attention to steps, sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots (especially if they are blacktop).

All the while keeping your employees and customers safe from injuries as a result of slipping on ice.
The best part is, this will eliminate one more item from your already too full list of tasks. Rock salt delivery comes with the benefit of a set it and forget it system. Simply establish an initial amount and your delivery driver will maintain your stock for you. Never again will you need to run to a local supplier or make yet another phone call.
