Safety for visitors
Take a “guest tour” of your facility, inspecting it from a visitor’s perspective. 

The safety of your guests—whether vendors, service providers, customers, student groups, employees’ family members or government inspectors—is paramount, not only for their own protection, but to safeguard your company’s reputation and minimize your liability.

Start with the grounds and parking lot, check the sidewalks and entrance.  Is there an established procedure for greeting visitors and ensuring their security while on your premises?   Do you have criteria for who is allowed on the premises, or in certain areas?  Do you have a procedure to follow in the event that a visitor becomes unruly or if an accident involves a visitor?

Everything from signage to frayed carpet should be part of your “guest tour.”

This risk tip is from GlassInsure, the NGA-sponsored insurance program.  For  information, contact the program administrator, Intercorp, at 800/640-7601, or check out www.glassinsure.com.
