As we are in the midst of a series of winter storms affecting most of California it makes sense to assess for property damage and ensure facilities are ready for the next storm.

Members are encouraged to increase property inspection frequency, especially of vacant buildings, during periods of extreme winter weather. This weather increases the likelihood of damage from trespassers seeking shelter and water/wind.

The Vacant Building Loss Prevention Best Practices include a helpful inspection checklist which can be utilized for any facility inspection.

Occupied facilities have the benefit of employees noticing and reporting damage, consider reminding employees how to report any property concerns.

We hope you are staying safe and warm. Contact Risk Control for additional assistance regarding winter property inspections.
