Winter is approaching fast and the shift in the weather can make any small business owner cringe. One of the leading causes of injury for commercial businesses is slip and fall accidents. Snow and ice become a problem because of the weather change and your business is at risk of a potential lawsuit during this time more than ever. However, practicing good maintenance and housekeeping can help prevent injuries and now is the time to start preparing.
Although the weather can affect both the outside and inside of a commercial building, falls and slips are more likely to occur outside. You can also keep the inside of your building free of potential hazards by practicing proper outdoor maintenance.
