Most of us love a sprinkling of snow, but it won’t have escaped you that snow often means ‘chaos’ on our roads. Not that it needs to. Twig is at the ready with snow-plough and shovel and gritting trucks if it’s icy too. If you or your company need to keep moving when everyone else is stuck, then drop us a line.
In the meantime, here are some top tips for staying safe when it’s cold and snowy:
- Drive only if it is absolutely necessary. If you must drive: travel in the day; don’t travel alone; keep others informed of your schedule and your route; stay on main roads and avoid back road shortcuts.
- Walk carefully on snowy, icy, walkways.
- If you must go outside, wear several layers of loose-fitting, lightweight, warm clothing rather than one layer of heavy clothing. The outer garments should be tightly woven and water repellent.
- Wear mittens, which are warmer than gloves.
- Wear a hat and cover your mouth with a scarf to reduce heat loss.
