Managing Your Risks

Managing Your Risks

If you are an occupier, particularly of a commercial establishment, there are certain steps you can take in order to minimize your potential liability should a visitor to your premises be injured.

Develop plans to deal with all foreseeable situations that could be dangerous or could lead to liability.

Put up easy-to-read, visible signage informing visitors of any potential risks.

Use waivers and informed consent forms.

Put into place proper inspection, maintenance and repair procedures. Keep records of all inspections, maintenance and repairs.

Never admit fault or liability should an injury occur.

If you require information with respect to your potential liability or require assistance to draft a proper waiver and/or consent form, please contact our office. One of our lawyers would be happy to speak with you.
