• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Snowfighter Training, Deicing Salt Trends, and Updates on New Canadian Salting Regulations
ANDY BRISCOE is director of Public Policy at the Salt Institute, an International trade association representing salt-producing companies around the world. The Institute advocates salt industry policy on such issues as human health, highway traffic saftey, water conditioning, and worker saftey.

A 'must-attend' session if your company does winter maintenance business. This session will review different training tools available, including new techniques and technologies. Stratigies for winter planning and organization will be covered, specifically targeting operations involving deicing salt. Also, there is an update on the status of Environment Canada's intention to declare road salts 'toxic' so that new maintenance policies on how road salts can be implemented.

I saw Andy do this presentation at the SIMA symposium this year. Its geared more toward highway work, however I got a lot out of it. It was definitely worth the two hours of my time.
