So many ways to fall

Before the customer even gets inside your business falls are waiting to happen. It is important to get the snow or ice removed and get salt or sand down to give the customer grip on their way into your business. Some businesses prefer to do this themselves and a good way to not overload one person is to give several employees each a task such as one shoveling the sidewalk and another salting it. If you choose to hire out make sure it is a reputable company that is always on the ball for getting it done. The last thing you want is shoddy work or worse yet several inches of snow and they are nowhere to be found. Once inside the store if you do not already have carpeting you will want to put down mats or rugs for people to kick snow off on and give them some acquisition steps to change surfaces. Tile in particular gets very slippery when stepping on with snow all over the bottom of the shoes. Being the floor is wet it never hurts to put up the wet floor sign just as a reminder to people. They can be so focused on what they came in the business for that they aren't really thinking about the floor being wet. Also just look around your business for other fall hazards and see what needs to be fixed. If one person slips somewhere be sure another will slip there as well. If you have carpeting and it has been heavily soiled because of snow and salt and dirt being tracked in this winter we can professionally clean it for you.
