Ways to prepare London office buildings for cold weather conditions.

How to ensure that your office routine isn’t disrupted by winter.

With snow expected to send Britain back into wintry chaos it is important to take some measures to ensure that your London office buildings still work efficiently.

Prepare for a Turbulent Commute

Firstly you need to consider your morning commute as well as your journey back home. If you are driving into work in the morning make sure you take sufficient supplies with you. Items such as a blanket, some food and perhaps a hot drink, a hazard triangle will prove extremely handy in an emergency situation, always ensure that you have your mobile phone fully charged before going out on longer journeys. You may also want to consider getting winter tyres fitted to your vehicle to better avoid getting stranded on the way to your London office buildings.

Check for Delays and Disruptions

If you take public transport to and from your London office buildings check for any delays or disruptions. You can do this by using the internet for updated weather conditions or going directly to the official travel websites. You can even do this on the move if you own a smart phone or tablet such as a Blackberry or iPad. Alternatively, you could simply watch the regional news in the morning and wait for any updates.

Secure your London Office Buildings’ Surroundings

If you run to your London office buildings it is equally as important to make sure that employees can enter the building safely. Ensure that all pathways and steps are suitably gritted to avoid anyone getting hurt from a nasty fall. If you have an office car park it is vital that you make sure that workers can enter and park their cars safely, do this by having any excess snow removed and gritting the parking area.

Finally, with temperatures expected to drop greatly next week it is essential that a comfortable office temperature is maintained. A cold office will result in uncomfortable employees that won’t produce a high standard of work.
