The national safety council estimates that approximately 8.9 trips are made to emergency rooms annually from slips, trips and falls.
Secondly they report that slip and trip falls resulted in 25,000 deaths in 2009 and is listed as the second leading cause of accidental death.

We used Transblue for our large landscape project. Our project included fencing, yard regrade, work around a complex septic layout, 7 zones of irrigation, dog area, sod and hydro seeding. The attention to detail to meet all our desires for the job was outstanding. Nate was our project architect and he checked in with the job and work frequently. His ability to pull all the necessary skilled workers for the plan was amazing. Would recommend their company to anyone who needs this type of service.
- Per event pricing. Per event pricing is a snow service based on accumulated snow fall within a specific period of time. As an example, you would pay per inch when snow is falling continually. When the snow stops falling for a period of four hours, for example, a new event starts when the snow starts falling again and the cycle continues. This is a cost effective snow removal program for many retail, big box and government programs.
- Seasonal pricing is a very effective snow pricing model for locations which experience heavy snow fall. A seasonal price is a dollar amount paid out evenly over a 5 or 6 month period. The dollar amount paid is paid out no matter how much or little snow falls. This is a great for budgeting your annual snow fall expenses. It also ensures you will not blow your snow budget too early in the season!
- Per push pricing is typically based on plowing 1-3 inches of snow each time the snow hits a predetermined trigger, usually 1 inch. This can be a very cost effective solution in geographical regions which receive low to moderate amounts of snow.
- Hourly pricing is the last of the 4 pricing models. Snow service per hour prices range from on demand to scheduled services and trigger points. This allows the property manager or facility manager to control exactly how many pieces of equipment are on site and how long they will be onsite. This is also a cost effective service method.

Infrared Asphalt Repairs
The infrared asphalt repair process uses an infrared heating system to heat in-place asphalt to soften it to a workable state, then new asphalt is added, which fuses seamlessly to the old asphalt. A very popular use of infrared repair is in pothole repair. As compared to the saw cut method, where the damaged asphalt is cut out and removed, filled with new asphalt and repaired, the infrared repair eliminates the seams, that quickly ruin such patches due to cracking. The big advantage of infrared repair is the feathered joining of the new patch material to the surrounding pavement – no seams, no water infiltration. Saw cut seams permit rainfall to enter, which quickly introduces moisture and freeze/thaw damage into the patch causing alligatoring in the parking lot. Many cut and patch repairs have to be redone every year.
The actual process for pothole repair using a truck-mounted infrared pavement heater is:
• Sweep and dry the area
• Position the infrared heating array over the pothole for seven to ten minutes
• Remove the heater and rake the softened (350 degree) asphalt
• Mix in a rejuvenator to replenish light oils that have oxidized away
• Add a small amount of fresh asphalt and grade it to level with a lute
• Use a vibratory roller to compact and fuse the patch with the surrounding pavement
• Patched area is ready for traffic within 20 minutes or so (depending on size)
Infrared repairs save money and are environmentally more effective than older methods. When preparing your budget, protect your spend and have Transblue provide a free consultation and see how we can save your brand money with our infrared process and expertise.
