With snow beginning to fall up and down the country, and with more promised, this winter weather has taken another treacherous turn. Before things get really dangerous, Stanmore Insurance have some easy steps you can take to help protect your business from the hazardous weather.

  • Make sure everyone understands your policies on gritting and clearing pathways. If snow arrives unexpectedly it is important to make sure that the first person on site knows what to do and how to communicate this to visitors and staff.
  • Staff must be advised to wear suitable footwear. We’ve seen claims won or lost because of the type of shoes an employee decided to wear
  • Pools of water can form if ice and snow are walked into the building so consider non-slip mats and an increased cleaning regime
  • To reduce the risk of burst pipes, insulate your pipes and water tanks or leave the heating on a low or frost stat setting.  
  • Make sure all your keyholders know what to do in an emergency. That includes knowing the location of the stop tap and fuse boxes as well as the emergency telephone numbers.
  • Finally, if the worst should happen don’t forget to contact your insurance advisor for support at the earliest opportunity. It’s worth keeping their telephone number and those of your insurers emergency service in your mobile so you help is available regardless of the hour.
