Why Snow Removal Is Essential for Your Utah Business

Posted : January 5, 2022

The time for winter snowstorms is here, and, like it or not, snow removal is an absolute must for Utah businesses. Snow buildup outside of your business can be a safety hazard to your employees and customers, and it might even slow your day-to-day operations. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here’s why snow and ice removal is essential for your Utah business.


The last thing you want is for snow buildup to stop customers from accessing your business. It’s important to remove snow from sidewalks, parking lots, stairs, and entryways so that your building can remain open and available to anyone who’s headed your way. 


Winter weather can present a serious safety hazard for employees and customers coming to your building. In 2014, over 40,000 work injuries across the United States involved snow, ice, or sleet. Utah businesses were responsible for 140 accidents, resulting in at least one day of missed work. 

Employees and guests shouldn’t have to be afraid of getting hurt when they come to your building. Effective snow removal can help your business remain a safe and hazard-free place for everyone who enters.

Reduced Liability

Think about those 140 snow-related injuries at Utah businesses. Who was held liable for their injuries? Accidents that occur on your property are your responsibility. So if a customer or employee takes a fall on a slippery sidewalk outside of your business, you could be held liable for their injuries and any damages. It’s essential that you stay on top of snow and ice removal at your business so you can do your part to prevent accidents from happening.

Stay Up to Code

Many cities, including Salt Lake City, have codes and ordinances in place that require businesses to remove snow and ice from the sidewalks in front of their buildings within 24 hours of a snowstorm. This typically includes removing snow from the entire width of the sidewalk and from any ADA ramps that lead to the street. Failing to follow these ordinances can result in a fine or a ticket being issued.
