Fred and Kristyne Hayden owners of Nashua Outdoor Power Equipment in Nashua NH, share a concern for the well being of their employees and customers and demonstrate it regularly with their efforts to maintain safe facilities.

A good example is when winter weather creates problems. Matt Parlatore, General Manager and the crew at Nashua Outdoor work very hard to thoroughly clear the lots and remove potential slip/fall hazards. They are pictured above donning their Slip/Fall Prevention Contest prizes, NHADA sweatshirts.

Here are some important considerations in adequate snow removal:

1. Have a snow removal plan in advance, train on the plan and update as needed.

Having a plan ensures that pre-storm preparations are completed, staff is aware of their responsibilities and the snow removal process is efficient and thorough.

2. Remove snow from in between vehicles (even small storms).

Leaving snow between cars creates a dangerous situation for both employees and customers.

3. Ensure that your storm cleanup crew is certified in the NHDES Green SnowPro program.

This program offers liability protection from weather related claims.

Bonus Tip:

Assign lot inspection and treatment responsibilities to staffers that arrive early to address hazards that presented themselves overnight.
