Theft and vandalism

  • Put your lights on a timer so that passersby think that there are late-night workers in the building.
  • Blinds or tinted windows offer an excellent deterrent for spontaneous theft and break-ins.
  • Put up security cameras that record at all times.
  • Never leave cash or valuable items visible from the street.

 

Fire

  • Turn off any equipment when not in use.
  • Place portable heaters away from flammable objects.
  • Invest in an automatic fire alarm that alerts the fire department when it detects smoke.

 

Customer slip-and-falls

  • Implement a policy that requires your team to remove clutter from the floors once an hour.
  • Encourage employees to keep all computer and equipment cables tidy at all times.
  • Avoid placing objects on stairwells.
  • Light all paths and steps effectively.
  • Mop up spills as soon as possible and place wet floor signs in damp areas.
  • Fix cracked or broken pathways.

 

Vehicle accidents

  • Keep vehicles in good condition. Regularly check the fluids, tires, brakes, lights, and engine. Perform tune ups regularly.
  • Educate your drivers on how to drive in bad weather. Ensure they know to pull over in poor weather conditions.
