Importance of Snow Removal
If you are part of a homeowner association or own a business, you need to prepare and have your snow plows scheduled and ready. Here are certain reasons why snow should be removed from properties:
Safety: Not only could someone fall while walking on snow but it could also result in car accidents and injuries. This can become a liability issue for you.
Loss of business: If it’s inconvenient to get into your parking lot, prospective customers may choose to go to other places.
Injured workers: If your business requires your employees to work outside then they could face injury working on a property still covered in snow. Having an employee clear the snow can also lead to injuries or other health conditions due to the physical demands of shoveling snow.
Life is easier for everyone: Clearing snow makes life easy for those in your house, especially when they have to live for work or school.
It is the law: City laws state that you are responsible for clearing the snow from your property. This should be done within a certain amount of time after the snowfall or else you will be held liable for any injuries that may occur.
