Minimize Property Losses

While you can't prevent all property losses from occurring, you can minimize the severity of property losses by following these tips:

  • Commit to controlling losses. If problems arise, handle them quickly and completely.
  • Update electrical wiring, heating, plumbing and the roof at least every 20 to 25 years.
  • Maintain good housekeeping. Regularly remove dust, dirt and debris; properly and promptly handle and dispose of waste; and properly store supplies, especially those that are flammable.
  • Perform regular preventive maintenance on your buildings and equipment. Preventive maintenance will minimize losses and improve the efficiency and life of your buildings and equipment.
  • Maintain safety equipment such as emergency exit lighting, a fire alarm system and fire extinguishers.
  • Maintain an adequate number of extinguishers and train your employees on how to use them.
  • Install and maintain protective devices such as an automatic sprinkler system.
