Autumn is coming. Here are some things you need to do to protect your business:
Be aware of the road risks. Fallen leaves, colder weather, rain, and darkness can all make it more dangerous to drive. Make sure your drivers are aware of the risks and take extra precautions.
Protect your property from the weather. Storms and floods can cause damage to your property. Make sure you have a plan in place to protect your business in case of bad weather.
Prevent slips and trips. Wet weather and leaves can make it more slippery, so take steps to prevent slips and trips. Such accidents not only harm the person involved but can also result in claims against your business, employee absence, and negative publicity.
Maintain your tools and equipment. Make sure your tools and equipment are in good working order and that they are used safely.
By taking these steps, you can help protect your business from the risks of autumn.
