Offset the Liability Risks of Winter Weather by Doing These 4 Things
It’s time to face the cold, hard fact: winter is here. The holiday shopping season means even more foot traffic in your location. Remember the following to keep your customers safe and incidents surrounding the liability risks of winter weather at bay:
- Immediately shovel snow, use salt frequently, and keep sidewalks clear to protect yourself from slip-and-fall accidents.
- If you use rugs or door mats, make sure they stay flat to avoid tripping hazards.
- Use professional contractors to remove snow from your rooftop to prevent a collapse or water damage.
- If you do have an incident at your location, offer assistance and empathy, but do not admit fault. Call your insurance agent to report the incident as soon as possible.
