While planning for your home and family is crucial, don’t forget to have a disaster preparedness plan for your business as well. You spend a large chunk of your week at the office, be prepared for what could happen here. Don’t hesitate to work with your employees on your disaster preparedness plan, this will be the best way to keep all of you safe in the worst situations.

 

Helping You Thrive

It is estimated that when a major disaster strikes an area, somewhere between 40 to 60 percent of the small businesses there will fail and shut their doors once things are back in order. Don’t let this happen to your business. Taking all the preparation steps beforehand, increasing the chance that your business will remain open even after a disaster has occurred.

 

Testing

There’s nothing wrong with performing routine tests in your business to ensure when real disaster strikes, everybody will know how to react. Testing the knowledge of your employees in a non-threatening situation will help gauge how prepared they will be should things turn deadly. Do drills where an evacuation is necessary. Ensure your employees file out of the building through the safest route. In addition to this, you should prepare for the disasters most common based on your region, whether that be earthquakes, tornadoes, tsunamis, or something else entirely. Perform drills on a regular basis to ensure your office will be ready for anything.

 

Build an Emergency Kit

Along with your home disaster kit, you should have an emergency kit in your office. This will be suited to fit your employees, and will vary depending on the size of your business. Assemble the kit, or kits in your office well before the disaster has struck. If anyone becomes trapped in the office and needs help, this may be the best source for you. Make each kit easy to grab for your employees. This should include water, food, and medical basics. These medical supplies can be used to treat minor injuries until help can arrive.

Keep your office safe and prepared for any situation that may arise. Have regular discussions with employees to ensure they will be ready in the face of disaster. By making the necessary arrangements beforehand, your office will be more secure than ever even in the worst situations.
