With the promised BBQ summer fast disappearing we find the weather is turning autumnal, leaves are falling and the rain is lashing down.
This can be an accident in the waiting and costs firms £000’s in compensation every year.
Are your external surfaces free from algae and leaves?
Where this is a recognised problem, introduce a regular inspection and cleaning programme. Removing the hazard before an employee or member of the public slips, suffers injury and pain, and ultimately makes a claim is not only a simple action, but could save you £000’s.
Not wanting to wish my life away, but don’t forget, winter is just around the corner, so consider ordering gritting materials before it actually arrives.
The HSE offers free guidance on slips, trips and falls.
