Protect your business against the elements

Whilst 2020 was one of the hottest years on record across the world, February, in the UK is looking extremely cold and wet, so here’s some information to help protect your business against the elements.

There are things that you can do to protect your business and your employees against the elements:

Keep the elements OUT 

  • Draught excluders
  • Flood protection
  • Clear drains
  • Keep up to date with repairs
  • Insulation

Health & Safety Precautions

  • Do weather related risk assessments
  • Optimum lighting
  • Grit/sand accessible
  • Slip resistance
  • Appropriate outdoor PPE

By not carrying out the above, you risk the elements making their way inside of your property, or causing damage from the outside in. All of which are costly and could present a risk to your employees and your customers.
