How can I protect my business against premises liability claims?

As a business owner in Miami-Dade, you are well aware that accidents can happen at any time on your property. Now that you are concerned about business liability, you are may be wondering - what can I do to protect my business against premises liability claims in the future?

One way that businesses can protect themselves, Forbes states, is to take steps to warn of a dangerous situation. For instance, maybe an insurance office has a roof with a leak in it and subsequently, the floor is wet and slippery. The best option until the leak can be fixed, is to put up signs that alert employees and customers of the problem. The business can even rope off that section of flooring for additional safety.

Another way for you to protect your business is to regularly inspect your property so you can spot potentially dangerous conditions and correct them right away. For instance, maybe your store has a broken elevator. An employee who was performing his or her rounds of inspection noticed the elevator was not functioning properly. The employee followed the store’s safety procedures and reported the problem to the manager or to you.

Once you are aware of the problem, you or a supervisor then seals off the elevator with caution tape and places notices and safety signs around it and the store, informing customers and employees of the problem and area to avoid. Your next step should be to call a service company to make arrangements for the elevator to be fixed as soon as possible.

By keeping everyone informed of any impending dangers in and around your property, and taking steps to train your employees on what they should do if they find a problem, you can minimize the risk of accidents.
