Documentation and Tracking Forms

In order to improve your practices it is important to document what practices you are using and how they work. One way of doing this is by using our example Post Storm Debriefing Form or something similar that you create for your business.

This form should help you record important information including:

  • The date  and conditions of the weather event
  • The site treated
  • If the equipment was calibrated
  • Deicing practices before the storm
  • Pavement temperature and condition
  • Material and application rate
  • Results

Example Forms

  • City of Madison Streets Department: this tracking form (XLSX) includes sheets for shift totals, daily totals, and storm totals.
  • Winter Parking Lot and Sidewalk Maintenance Manual: page 38-39 have very basic example tracking forms.
