12 Snow and Ice Removal Tips for Commercial Property Owners

Commercial Property Winter Safety Tips

Winter Safety Tips for Your Delaware Commercial Property

Our Property Management Team at HHA is preparing for a busy winter season. We are committed to quality through superior property management services. Consistent and reliable maintenance repairs, improvements and upgrades will ensure the safest workplace environment for your organization during the challenging winter months. Our field team would like to offer the following work place winter safety tips.

Salt and Sand

Having enough salt and sand on hand will always help keep walkways clear of ice and snow. It’s always a good idea to have a bucket stocked near entry ways all season long.

Floor Mats and Warning Signage

Make sure heavy traffic entrances have weather proof mats properly installed and labeled to remind employees and guests to watch their steps to avoid slips and falls. This practice also helps keep all outside elements and debris from coming into your office space – keeping it clean, professional and safe.

HVAC Settings

Unless you experience extremely cold conditions, try to keep your thermostat set to the same temperature. This helps prevent the heating and cooling system from unnecessary use and conserves energy. As a general rule of thumb, never have your thermostat programmed lower than 55 degrees.
