Becoming Winter Ready At Work
Are you prepared for the upcoming cold weather? Cold weather can have a huge impact on your home or business if you are not ready for it. From heavy rain and freezing temperatures to damaging winds, sleet,or snow, all can cause serious property damage. While you cannot control the weather, you can take steps to be prepared and help take the sting out of winter weather. You need to check your business property for downed tree limbs and branches. Wind, heavy rain, ice and snow can cause branches to fall, which would cause damage to the property and potentially cause personal injuries. Also inspect walkways and parking lots, for proper drainage to alleviate a potential flood hazard. Inspect all handrails, stairwells, and entryways to address and correct potential slippery or hazardous areas. Install mats or non-slip surfaces and post caution signs where water could be present.
