Employer’s Snow and Ice Removal Checklist

As an owner or manager of a commercial property, you have an obligation to maintain safe conditions for employees and visitors.

This is not only a safety hazard, it can also be an expensive legal issue. Slip and fall claims are common after any winter event or freeze. Most of these claims can be prevented with the proper snow and ice removal practices. Having a plan in place to reduce exposure of these claims, or the ability to transfer responsibility for these claims to snow removal contractors, is critical.
