Cold Weather Risk Management

Cold Weather Risk Management

We are all feeling it today!  Winter is on our doorstep here in Utah.  This is a good time to take an inventory of the ways you are protecting your business and customers as the season of ice and snow moves in.  Slip and fall lawsuits can be avoided by being proactive when it comes to the safety of your customers.  Some simple tips include keeping surfaces free of tripping hazards, installing and maintaining handrails, maintaining proper drainage and having shovels and salt on hand to keep your entry areas clear of snow, ice and water.  Making the safety of your customers a priority not only protects them, it can protect your liability insurance policy from easily avoidable claims.
