New members’ training courses added

SIMA’s membership investment comes with many benefits, including on-demand snow training courses. 

Our commitment to our members is to continuously increase the value of tangible member benefits. That’s why we recently added a new set of five courses to our existing members-only training platform.

Our goal is simple: Help members plug in to a ready-made diverse set of training tools so you don’t have to build your snow-specific training from scratch. The SIMA Training Center at is a SIMA member’s best friend. It not only houses the members-only training but also numerous best practices guides, production documents, and contracts and forms. We take our “Stronger with Support” statement to members seriously.

New courses include: 

Creating Standard Operating Procedures for Snow Operations 
• Using SOPs as training tools and teachable moments
• Documenting SOPs effectively
• Concrete examples of SOPs

Salt Purchasing and Inventory Management
• Tools to help manage salt and deicing material inventory more effectively

Injury Prevention for Snow Professionals
• Areas that may cause danger
• Walking on snow and ice/exiting vehicles in icy conditions
• Identifying site hazards that may lead to injury to an employee or patron
• Safe shoveling and snow blower use
• Tips and techniques to encourage an injury-free workplace

Disaster Response and Documentation Essentials
• Create an emergency response plan
• Protect your company from risk exposure when an accident or disaster occurs
• Documentation essentials
• Create a must-report culture and build transparency

Principles for Selling Snow as a Risk Management Service
• Defining risk management and learning to distinguish between risk avoidance, risk reduction, risk retention, risk transfer and risk sharing
• Attach greater meaning and value to risk management as a service and learn how to sell it as such

We are always interested in hearing how we can improve and strengthen our membership support. Please email any time with your ideas and suggestions.
