The Importance of Snow Removal Planning for Businesses
Owners and managers of commercial property have an obligation to maintain safe conditions for employees and occupants. During the winter season, walkways, stairs, driveways, interior roadways and parking lots become slip and trip hazards as snow falls and ice forms. This is not only a safety hazard, it can also be an expensive legal issue for property owners, if an accident occurs. That’s why snow removal planning for businesses is such an important consideration.
To prevent injuries and minimize injury costs, commercial property owners should consider implementing a snow removal program using the checklist provided.
The program should identify responsibilities, communication strategies, equipment used and follow-up procedures for snow removal. In addition, all of your actions (or the actions of a hired snow removal contractor) should be outlined in a snow and ice removal log. Periodically, review your program to ensure that it is successfully working for your property and is minimizing the rate of injuries.
