Winter operations, especially the use of salt, are a large portion of parking lot and roadway maintenance in NH. This workshop will address the environmental impacts of salt and why it is important to be conscious of these effects. We will cover everything from how to prepare for winter to cleaning-up after a storm, all while minimizing salt use. Liability management through developing customer-specific winter maintenance policies will be discussed, as well as the other economic benefits of becoming certified.
NHDES Salt Applicator Certification - Individuals who have attended the Green SnowPro Training and have passed the exam are eligible to apply for the voluntary NHDES Salt Applicator Certification per RSA 489-C and Code of Administrative Rules, amended and adopted effective June 1, 2018 Env-Wq 2200.
Important Notice to Municipalities Regarding Green SnowPro Training and Salt Applicator Certification:
State of New Hampshire does not have authority to certify municipal salt applicators per the current statute wording (see Statute 489--Salt Applicator Certification Option C:1 Definitions) where as "Commercial applicator" means any individual who applies or supervises others who apply salt, but shall not include municipal or state employees. Although NH is unable to issue certificates to municipal employees at this time, the NH Department of Environmental Services (DES) is working on new legislation that would incorporate a voluntary program to include municipal employees. Meanwhile, municipalities are encouraged to actively participate in training opportunities such as Green SnowPro through UNH T2, in order to employ best management practices in snow and ice management in their communities.
Green SnowPro classes do qualify for Roads Scholar hours with UNH T2.
