Don’t Let Winter Create Hazardous Garage Or Shop Areas

Winter is still here and it is important to not let snow or ice buildup around your overhead doors create a hazardous situation in your garage or shop areas.

A dry floor creates a safe and healthy environment. And that can only happen if you prevent winter ice buildup around your overhead door entrances.

A poorly-sealed overhead door is usually the cause of a wet floor that can turn to ice in the winter. Stopping air (and water) infiltration obviously creates a better work area and saves money.

To put it in a broader sense, it’s time to Stop The Snirt in your shop or garage.

Okay, first of all, what is snirt? Traditionally, it is the unsightly and messy combination of snow and dirt that can blow underneath or through the sides of your poorly-sealed overhead doors.

In a broader sense, snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under your door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern, which costs Americans millions of dollars a year.

Infiltration that leads to ice buildup can result in injury to your employees or delivery persons, such as UPS, FedEx or LTL drivers. It’s time to eliminate this OSHA violation or potential legal concern by taking steps to prevent an icy entrance.

Another problem is ice or snow buildup that causes your overhead door to freeze shut. This obviously reduces the efficiency of your operation and can be a critical concern in the event of medical emergency at your business location.
