Ensure that all areas of the mall are well-maintained

A shopping mall inspection checklist is a tool used to ensure that a shopping mall is safe, secure and well-maintained. The checklist is designed to help identify potential risks and to ensure that all safety, security and maintenance regulations are being followed. It typically covers the entire mall, from the parking lot to the interior of the mall, and can be used to ensure that all areas are safe and up to code.

The checklist typically includes items such as making sure that the parking lots are well-lit and free of debris and hazards, that the mall exterior is free of any graffiti, that the interior is free from any structural damage, that the fire alarm and sprinkler systems are working properly, and that the elevators and escalators are functioning safely. It also includes checking the security cameras and other security equipment, making sure the mall is adhering to all applicable fire codes, and ensuring that all entrances and exits are properly marked and secured. Lumiform’s provided checklists can be customized to your specific needs.

By using a shopping mall inspection checklist, mall owners and operators can ensure that their mall is meeting all safety and security regulations and is providing a safe and enjoyable shopping experience for their customers.
