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.

Snowy Car

Snow removal from your businesses and residences isn't the only thing you should be worried about; it's also important to remove snow from your car prior to hitting the road — in fact, it's the law. Since 2002, New Hampshire drivers have been legally required to clear snow and ice off their cars before getting on the road. Drivers who violate the law face fines of $250 to $500 for a first offense and $500 to $1,000 for subsequent offenses.
