Winter weather risk: protect your business when the mercury tumbles

Winter has barely started and Storm Desmond has already wreaked flood havoc in Cumbria. While the weather may be unpredictable, one thing’s for sure – winter will bring snow, ice, floods and paralysed transport.

With winter weather comes a range of business risks. From keeping your workplace free from snow and ice (that can also mean a light dusting of trip and slip injuries and/or civil claims) to protecting your property, commercial assets and business continuity from the capricious British winter.

It’s a good time to reacquaint yourself with the practical mitigation steps you can take to offset the impact of plunging temperatures. Best practice risk management coupled with the judicious application of common sense can go a long way to reducing your exposure to the damage caused by winter weather.

In this winter weather guide, leading business insurance broker Arthur J. Gallagher takes a broad view of the operational and liability risks that comes with cold weather - and what you can do to mitigate its impact on your business.
