While you may have worker’s compensation measures in place, as well as accident liability guidelines for your staff, there is nothing to legally prevent you from a legal hassle if something happens to visitors on site. As a result, it is essential that you look into having visitors sign some kind of liability form or waiver before they come on site.
This waiver should outline that you are not responsible for visitors that do not follow safety guidelines or that do not remain with an assigned guide that is to stay with them while on site. There are a number of different ways that you can ensure that visitors sign and read these liability forms. For example:
- Have visitors sign a physical form when signing in with the receptionist. Of course, this does require that someone be there to deal with and greet all site visitors.
- Have supervisors responsible for taking visitors through the site get all visitors to sign a liability waiver.
- Use a visitor management system that requires all visitors accept to waive liability before going onto the site.
