Disaster Preventive measures for small businesses

Effective Disaster Preventive measures for small businesses put an emphasis on steps for prevention of disaster and follow-up measures as well. As they say, prevention is always better than cure. Natural calamities can destroy a business if one is not prepared for what to do but many times it is a small mishap that causes the maximum damage.

Though natural disasters cannot be predicted, it is always advisable to be ready for them. Following are a few suggestions to safeguard your employees and the business in the event of a disaster:

1.    Public warnings should be respected and do not second-guess evacuation orders. It is better to err on the side of caution.
2.    Establish emergency evacuation procedures.
3.    Keep fire extinguisher and first aid kits handy and keep checking them at periodical intervals.
4.    Mobiles with programmed emergency numbers should be kept ready.
5.    Data should be backed up on a periodic basis and kept offsite safe and secured.
6.    Insurance policy information should be kept updated.
7.    Look for all possible sources of hazards and try to diffuse them.
8.    Do not stock inflammable items.
9.    Store all your data off-site
10.    Keep regular backups of data on line
