Ah, summertime! It’s a great time for property managers to kick back and relax! Except for that out-of-control grill fire on the deck of unit 31 that nearly jumped to adjacent units. And that pesky 13-year-old who broke his finger during horseplay in the community swimming pool.
Actually, maybe summertime isn’t the best time for condo managers to let their guard down.
Unfortunately, with the increase in outdoor activity that summertime brings, the potential for injuries on the property jumps, along with the need for additional safety measures. To get though the summer without mishap, safety experts recommend a whole series of precautions to managers.
The swimming pool and the surrounding area are where most injuries or deaths occur in the summertime.
One of the easiest ways to cut downon these potential disasters is to hire lifeguards, according to Brandon Whitman, CPO, owner of LionHeart Contracting, a maintenance, construction and staffing firm in Franklin, Massachusetts.
