In Chester, NJ and surrounding areas, businesses are working diligently to keep their workplace safe and hazard-free for their employees and customers who travel through the area. At The Insurance Outfit, our agents would like to provide our clients with three tips to keep everyone safe at the workplace.
Keep walkways and public areas clear
- Remove excess water
- Avoid stacking boxes
If you are expecting your customers and your employees to visit this area while the business is open, it is best to give them a clear area to walk through without having to walk through a maze or find their way through.
Sings and Labels are your Friends
Point out locations and directions clearly with signs and labels to keep both your employees and your customers safe as they work their way through your business. Knowing which direction they are going, especially if they are looking for a certain room, area, or office can prevent further damage. For workplaces that are not appropriately labeled, these individuals may find themselves in the wrong place and get hurt.
Having daily or shift inspections of tools and areas by a member of management is essential to everyone’s safety. When you conduct a thorough inspection as required, management will find problems such as broken furniture, a leak, or notice excess clutter that needs to be eliminated before clients get hurt. These inspections protect everyone traveling through the area.
Top off the Safety with Commercial Insurance
In addition to these ways to keep your workplace safe, choose a commercial insurance policy from The Insurance Outfit. If you live in or around Chester, NJ and own a business, our agents are ready to talk to you and help you get the coverage you need.
