Gritting Services - the Gold Standard from Botanical

For another subsequent year, Botanical Group have been awarded the Gold Quality Mark from the Met Office for our Gritting Services. This means you can choose us with absolute confidence in our ability to reliably deliver efficient, intelligent and informed gritting solutions, whatever the situation and environment.

The Met Office has been established since 1854, since when it has grown to become the UK’s leading, official provider of meteorological predictions across timescales from future climate to minute-by-minute updates and forecasts. Using state-of-the-art technology, the Met Office continually record current weather and make predictions for the future - this data is used in countless ways all over the world.

The Quality Mark scheme from the Met Office has four levels of which ours, the gold standard, is the highest achievable. The four criteria we meet are:

  • We receive detailed, up-to-the-minute OpenSite forecasts from the Met Office, allowing us to gain instant access to the most accurate and trusted weather reports available and tailor our service accordingly

  • Our staff have attended a face-to-face Gritting Weather Essentials training course

  • We have also completed the Weather Basics online course

  • Botanical currently use a supplementary Met office service to aid winter maintenance

As qualifiers for the Quality Mark, Botanical receive expert guidance on the best use of weather forecast information provided by the Met Office. We have also shown that we have made solid investments in gritting services training in order to fully equip our staff for the accurate interpretation of weather information and how it affects essential factors such as changes in the temperature of road surfaces.

Whatever the size of your application, Botanical have got you covered for this coming winter season. From a single staff member with a shovel to a fully-articulated, 4-wheel drive gritter weighing a cool 18 tonnes, we can quickly and reliably deliver the right solution at the right price.
