THE ONLY HOSPITAL SNOW REMOVAL PARTNER YOU WILL EVER NEED
It can be very challenging when it comes to the winter months. Homes, businesses and other organizations can encounter a lot of potential liability if there is a large amount of snow on their property. Heavy snow at a hospital is one of those situations that can present a special challenge; not only do you have to guard against accidents from pedestrians slipping and falling, but you also have to contend with keeping all of your employees and first responders safe when they are delivering patients to the emergency room as well. How do you go about doing this? Well, as a hospital administrator you have two choices: you could either have your full-time maintenance employees remove the snow for you, or you could go with an independent contractor to get your snow removed. Here are just a few of the many advantages of contracting the job of snow removal out to a professional firm:
Our Snow removal professionals are more experienced with hospitals in South Bend.
Simply put, it's less risky to have snow removal professionals do this. There are a lot of things that could happen if you had your full-time maintenance crew do this. First of all, they could slip and fall on the ice, and then your hospital would have an instant liability issue on your hands. Additionally, you will save your employees the risk of developing muscle strain or muscle injuries from overexertion. Snow can be very heavy! Of course, you don't want to risk your employees going through any type of frostbite injury either. Can you say OSHA violation? Because that is what you would be likely facing if one of your employees gets hurt because of snow removal.
Your hospital can hire a professional snow removal company on a contract basis.
Another reason why you and the rest of your hospital leadership staff might be tempted to simply let your maintenance employees handle snow removal is that its easier to remain organized with them. However, please realize that you and your hospital leadership don't have to pay a professional snow removal company on a "per push" basis. You can talk to them during the off-season and sign a contract with them where they will always automatically show up after a heavy snowstorm.
Hiring outside professionals will keep your employee morale higher.
As a hospital administrator, you realize that the last thing you need is a work environment where there is low morale. You also realize is that it often only takes one disgruntled employee for this to create a poor work environment. Just think what could happen if your entire hospital maintenance staff was upset? Don't let it get to that point! Letting an outside company handle your snow clean-up will avoid that.
