Although commercial landscaping is most commonly thought of as a way to beautify your property and entice new visitors, or make current tenants and employees feel more comfortable in their own space, these are not the only benefits. Safety should be a top priority for any landscape contractor, but on large office park properties, the stakes increase. With a wealth of liability, regulation and just downright headaches to worry about, no property manager wants to deal with an injured individual on their property. While accidents happen, at Pezza Landscape, we pride ourselves on minimizing your risk through tried and true safety practices, as well as taking care of issues as they arise, whether that be due to a storm or simply a dead tree. Read along as we list a few ways in which we believe safety matters on your office park, commercial property.
Keeping Tenants Content
Whether it is a visitor or an employee of a company located on your property, you do not want to be held responsible for an accident or injury. Unleveled or rough pavement can be a risk for individuals walking to and from, as well as fallen branches or leftover ice after a storm. The men and women who come and go every day from your office park property want to feel safe, it is the human condition. If your property is not up to par, you could very well find yourself with tenants rushing to leave, looking for the safety they so desire. All it takes is one freak accident, and morale plummets.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration or (OSHA) is the regulatory agency in charge of inspecting and examining workplaces. Failure to comply with their guidelines could easily result in fines, legal repercussions, or at worst closure of a business or building. Maintaining safety as a priority is just another way in which to shield yourself from these potential issues.
As you know, with many landscape jobs comes the use of trucks, trailers, chippers, mowers and much more. Throw in hand tools such as trimmers, saws and edgers and you have a recipe for potential safety issues. This is why when it comes to who you are taking on as your landscape contractor, you have full confidence in their experience and professionalism. Pezza Landscape has been around for the past 65 years, so we know a thing or two. Maintaining the highest of safety standards for ourselves goes right along with our cry that safety matters.
Service Oriented Safety
When it comes to developing your landscape management plan, there are a few key services to consider that do a great job at mitigating risk. In the snowy Chicago winter, snow and ice management becomes a necessity for any office park. Parking lots left unplowed, and ice left on the ground are two easy ways to find yourself liable for a winter accident. Additionally, making sure that tree pruning is done in a timely fashion can prevent problems such as dead, falling branches. Always remember, better safe than sorry.
