person slip and fallJust like you prepare your home for the harsh winter weather, you must also ensure that your workplace is safe both from the elements and for your employees to inhabit during work hours. Accidents and fires during wintertime are very common, so it’s important that you are proactive in preventing danger. Here are some tips to help you prepare your workplace for winter.

Preventing Slips and Falls

Icy parking lots and walkways cause many fender benders and slip-and-fall accidents during wintertime. It’s your responsibility to keep the facility safe. You can do that by applying a road salt product or a commercial de-icer to remove snow and ice from outdoor areas. However, be sure to select a product that will not harm surfaces, people or animals.

Backup Data

Stormy or freezing weather and power surges can easily knock out electronic equipment, along with your stored data. To prevent such a catastrophic loss, regularly back up data and check to ensure that your backup system is working properly.

Enhance Environmental Quality

Colder weather requires tight seals around doors and windows, which can trap contaminants indoors. It’s a good idea to switch to cleaning and office supplies that do not emit toxic vapors or distribute contaminants to prevent accumulation.

Implement a Telecommunication Policy

Some winter storms are so bad that your employees may not be able to safely make it into the office. It’s a good idea to set up a telecommunication program in advance to ensure that should your employees get stuck at home, they have the equipment they need to work there.

We’ll help keep your employees safe. Call First Insurance Group at (800) 511-2892 for more information on Richmond business insurance.
