FRAMINGHAM, MA — With summer officially behind us, the focus of building and facility managers'' work in entryways shifts from cleaning up tracked-in dirt to cleaning up tracked-in snow, according to a press release.
Winter-weather hazards can result in dangerous slip-and-fall accidents, which have led states like Massachusetts to enact new laws where property owners are now legally responsible for snow and ice removal, the release noted.
To minimize risks to people and property, Staples Facility Solutions
has compiled a list of guidelines and product information that facility managers should review before purchasing ice-melting products, the release stated.
According to the release, these include taking preventative measures and understanding the total cost of your ice-melt regimen.
