  • What time does the first employee arrive for work?
  • What time does the last employee leave work?
  • What is the work schedule for the maintenance personnel?
  • Who is available to assist if there is extra-heavy snow fall?
  • How easy is it for employees or customers to report problem areas?
  • How often are walkway conditions checked?
  • Is there a protocol for closing areas if needed?
