Is Your Business Ready for the Unexpected?

January 18, 2018

It is impossible to predict how a disaster will effect a business's normal operations. However, businesses can combat this by being prepared and aware of potential threats prior to an incident. According to FEMA, up to 40 % of small businesses never recover after being hit by a major disaster. With that being said, when a disaster or major emergency occurs, it pays to be ready. There are simple steps a business can take to be ready for any kind of hazard.

Think about these questions in regards to your place of business.

  • What potential hazards does your work face?

    • Hurricanes

    • Floods

    • Severe Weather

    • Power Outages

    • Serious Illnesses (Sick Employees)

    • Active Threat (Workplace Violence / Active Shooter)

  • Do all workers know what to do during an emergency?

  • Does your place of business have company emergency plans or procedures?

  • Does the company have back up plans or a Plan B?

  • Are company emergency procedures tested regularly (e.g., Fire drills,exercises, etc.)?

  • Are the plans or procedures current and accurate?

  • Are there any gaps in the plans or procedures?

  • What are the risks if not properly prepared?
