In an article published on Inside Self Storage, G&A Partners’ director of risk management, Andrew Scott, details the importance of self-storage businesses crafting and maintaining health and safety programs that ensure safety, as well as increase morale, across their workforces.
For any employer, starting from scratch on an effective health and safety program can be a daunting task, but Scott assures it can be more streamlined than one may think.
Serving as a pathway to sustaining a safe workplace, Scott’s article discusses four of the most common safety concerns in self-storage businesses and notable fixes to resolve these risks. Additionally, Scott provides key points on how to implement a new safety program most effectively, and details how an employer can benefit from the expert assistance of hiring a professional employer organization.
This year’s “Great Resignation” aside, providing comprehensive plans to keep employees safe has always been a must for employers. “Studies have shown that staff feel more valued when their employer shows concern for their well-being by investing in safety. And it isn’t just good business, it’s the law,” says Scott.
