If we get anything here in Colorado – it’s snow. If you ski, then you are thrilled to see it. But sometimes it can be a challenge – especially for commercial building owners.
For building owners, snow represents a challenge. It represents work, and also a liability. What are some things you can do to lessen issues with snow removal? Here are a couple of points:
- Think about hiring out the snow removal. Some owners like to do it themselves. Or maybe you have a maintenance team that you have on staff that does it. But outside contractors can sometimes be quicker about getting the snow removed. It also offers a layer of protection at times when their insurance covers incidents if they neglect something.
- Don’t forget emergency exits. Too many times we see the main and side entrances cleared out, but not the emergency exits. If there were an emergency, then there would be a serious issue. Be sure to clear out the emergency exits too.
- Don’t forget the icicles. These things can be dangerous. Especially if you have a busy building can this be an issue. Be sure to keep them under control.
By following those 3 points, you can be better equipped to handle the snow this winter.
