January 18 Business Continuity Tip: Steer Clear of Winter Problems

Winter weather has arrived! Here are some tips for your business to steer clear of common winter problems.

  • Keep your sidewalks clear. Help keep people safe and prevent slips and falls by immediately clearing your sidewalks of snow and ice and putting down salt.
  • Have a plan for dealing with bad weather and winter storms. Know how to alert your employees about whether they need to come in or not. Know your supply chain and what needs to be stocked in preparation for bad weather.
  • Have a clear work-from-home policy. Your employees can continue to be productive even at home, but make sure your staff knows the protocol and any telecommuting technology has been tested.
