As a result of Covid 19, these are difficult times for each and all of us. As stakeholders in winter maintenance ourselves we understand the challenges you’re experiencing. The Smart About Salt Council (SASC) is here to assist you as best we can. The volunteer Board of Directors of SASC has agreed that starting Friday, May 1, 2020 twice a month until the end of the pandemic shutdown, one (1) of the modules that comprise the “Essentials of Salt Management” award-winning training course will be offered free-of-charge.

The training offered by SASC is geared to people working in the snow and ice control business. Contractor managers, supervisors and operators will benefit from the course. Facility managers that control winter operations and hire and direct snow and ice contractors should be trained to best understand the business of snow and ice control. Risk managers will learn about winter related risks and how these can be managed as well as the challenge contractors face because of poor site design.

The SASC training for winter maintenance professionals, owners/operators and others can:

ü  Help win contracts

ü  Help to reduce the costs of winter maintenance

ü  Help to provide a defense against legal claims

ü  Help to differentiate good contractors from others

ü  Help reduce the impacts of salt on infrastructure

ü  Help improve client and customer relations

ü  Support the environment and drinking water resources 

Successful completion of the SASC training and associated exam are fundamentals required for Smart About Salt Council certification.
