1. Check that the parking area and walkways are always well maintained, so that the pathways are smooth and safe from uneven surfaces, potholes or cracks.

2. Check refrigerators frequently, to make sure no water is leaking on the floor and that they are still working. This avoids refrigerated vaccines becoming unusable and wasted.
