Disasters happen all the time and can cost you everything if you’re not prepared. It’s true that sometimes you never know when or what will arise, but to ensure the best outcome, emergency preparedness can go a long way. One of the first things you should do when you start your business is develop an emergency plan. You’ll need to take a look at the biggest risks to your business depending on geographical location and the industry you’re in. There are checklists provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, that can help. Having a thorough emergency plan and properly training your employees will not only help to keep you safe, it will also protect you from unexpected and costly repairs. Preparing your business for the worst case scenario is an integral part of any well rounded business plan.
