SIMA Best Practices Checklist

Benchmark Your Snow Removal Operation
This tool can be used by anyone who is seeking to hire snow & ice management services, and by snow removal contractors themselves, to asses the various attributes that make up a professional, quality snow management operation. It is also valuable for insurance agents and underwriters when documenting the level of professionalism/sophistication of a snow removal company.

The checklist provides an easy-to-use checkbox format, one page in length, focusing on these 8 core areas:

  • ​Safety, liability, and risk management
  • ​Estimating, planning, and cost effectiveness
  • ​Execution and responsiveness
  • ​Quality of service
  • ​Communication, documentation, and verification
  • ​Certification/standards of education
  • ​Expertise and professionalism
