As snow season nears, so does the threat of slip and falls lawsuits and bad PR that Michigan businesses would love to avoid. In fact, thousands of people will die each year from injuries received while falling on snow and ice according to the CDC. But working with an ISO certified snow removal company can limit your liability, protect you from legal action and save you money overall.

Reduce Lawsuit Risks
Hiring a snow removal company with ISO 9001/SN9001 certification means you have the assurance of a using rigorously tested contractor for your snow plowing, ice management and snow removal. To get certified, companies must have carefully documented processes and procedures for managing and validating a company’s snow removal plan. This dramatically reduces your need to worry about slip and falls on your property.
Should a slip or fall occur, an ISO 9001/SN9001 certified company will have the documentation in place to help successfully build a solid defense against any lawsuit. This not only helps to protect your company, but it tends to discourage lawsuits from being filed all together. This saves your company time, money and bad publicity!
Through the Accredited Snow Contractors Association (ASCA), a set of written snow and ice management Industry Standards were created that later were accredited by The American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Following these protocols ensures a company has professionals committed to quality management, strong communications policies in place and an ongoing review system for continued improvement.
