What can I do at my water site to reduce the risk of accidents occurring on ice during the winter months?

You must have a fully developed strategy for winter water safety and staff should know and understand the normal operating procedures and emergency action plans.

Operators need to know where the public tends to go onto the ice and when these bodies of water freeze over. This information needs to be covered in their risk assessments.

For further advice please read our Ice Safety Fact Sheet.
