LOSS CONTROL TOPIC OF THE MONTH:
BALCONY, DECK & PIER SAFETY
A hotel balcony with sitting chairs overlooks Waikiki Beach in Honolulu Hawaii.
Does your property have balconies? Decks? Piers? When were they last inspected, to be sure they are safe for use? 
 
When it comes to balconies, decks, and piers, structural failure or collapse can lead to severe injuries, including fatalities. The three primary causes of such failures are:
  • Rotted railings, deck boards, and/or stairs
  • Main connecting board (ledger board) incorrectly attached
  • Hardware fasteners that are rusted or corroded
