Create a Business Continuity Plan
It’s impossible to predict the future, but there are ways to ensure you have a plan for any interruptions in your business. Almost half of all small businesses are permanently shuttered after a disaster, and knowing what to do ahead of time can make the difference in whether you’re able to get back up.
Continuity plans aren’t just for massive property damage caused by a natural disaster. A roof leak or mold problem requiring repair and clean-up can displace employees for days or even weeks.
Some key benefits of a continuity plan include:
- Minimizes financial losses
- Reduces operational down-time
- Identifies opportunities for employees to continue working
- Expediting the restoration process
If Disaster Strikes, Act Quickly
Minimizing business impact starts with a plan. In addition to quickly enacting the plan when a loss occurs, it’s also important that your workforce is aware of it and knows what to do. Ensure policies and procedures are in place based on the continuity plan, and train the workforce regularly. Communication is key!
In addition to notifying employees, you must also act quickly to minimize physical damage. Once the area is safe, work to preserve critical equipment and files. Remember that a scene that looks disastrous may not be as bad as you think, especially with professional restoration services.
