Planning for the winter months is not just about snow clearance and road gritting. Checking and maintaining your exterior lighting is essential to keep your site secure and to keep your visitors and workforce safe.
Your external lighting illuminates routes in and out of your building and around your site - this is crucial for safe site access in the winter months when the hours of daylight are often shorter than working hours.
You will need to check the lighting itself to ensure no bulbs have gone, and that the lighting is clean and effective. Shrubs or plants may need to be cut back if they have grown over the summer to impact on the visibility of paths.
