3 Ways to Reduce Liability for Injuries and Damages at Your Business

by VersaTube Marketing on July 16, 2019

Americans are consistently ranked as the most litigious people on the planet. After all, 80% of the world’s lawyers live in the United States. As a business owner, you know that being sued can be a nightmare for your business and plenty have gone under because of the astronomical cost of lawsuits. The good news is that you can reduce your exposure to liability for injuries and damages at your business by following these guidelines:

Do a Risk Assessment

Auditing the risks your organization faces is a smart first step toward minimizing the chances that you’ll be sued. Prevention is 90% of protection, so you’ll want to get out ahead of any potential hazards. There are professionals who can do this for you, but no one knows your business better than you, so think about whether there are physical dangers in the area like a busy parking lot, exposed construction materials, etc. Many business owners would benefit by adding a simple storage space like a shed to clear out obstacles on company grounds.

However, don’t think your liabilities stop there, you’ll also need to assess your organizational culture and root out human problems like sexual harassment and discrimination. The best way you can accomplish this is, first, to lead with a set of values and second, to hire a good H.R. representative.  

Comply with All Laws and Regulations

You will greatly reduce the chances that you are liable if an incident does occur if you are following all laws as a business owner. Are your exits and entries ADA approved? It’s a good idea to speak to a lawyer about the regulations you are subject to in order to avoid a costly lawsuit.

Eliminate Hazards

Is there a slippery walkway leading to your building? How about a set of precarious stairs? Make the area around your business safer by adding a covered walkway to the front entrance. Do your employees wander around on their breaks? Did you even know you can be liable if one of them gets hurt? You can add a shelter to give them a break area or a smoking area to keep smoke away from the environment.
