Does Your Beacon Business Have Emergency Procedures Put in Place for Severe Weather?
Severe weather is an unpredictable force that can truly happen anytime and anywhere. While this presents plenty of safety concerns, it also presents concerns for businesses as well. Making sure that your business is prepared for anything—especially a severe weather event—is key to overcoming any obstacles and resuming operations quickly after a storm.
Creating an emergency plan is so important for businesses, both to keep everyone who works there safe and to ensure you do not face irreversible losses due to a storm or other weather event. Below, we will look at some ways that businesses can keep themselves safer in the face of severe weather.
Steps to Create a Severe Weather Plan for Your Business
- Understand Your Risks
To better plan for any severe weather event, understanding the risks your business faces is so important. You can use data from the NOAA to be better informed about the probability of severe weather so you can get an idea of what you are planning for. It is also important to note that for events such as floods, they are happening more frequently and in areas that were not previously impacted, so just because there has not been a historical risk does not mean it can be discounted as impossible.
- Plan for the Moment
If a severe weather event is going to occur, it will often occur with very short notice, so it is important to have a plan in place for the moment you find out about it. Account for various scenarios, making sure you have a plan for yourself and employees both for if you are instructed to evacuate and if you must stay put at your business.
- Plan for the Aftermath
After a severe weather event, recovering quickly is so important for business owners. It is wise to have a plan for how you will go about this recovery, including what commercial restoration company you will work with, so you can immediately begin the process of cleaning up and getting back to business.
