Flooded Conference RoomBusiness risks are ever-present. Your employees may go on strike, or your vendor may go out of business. In every situation, you have to prepare your business for the unknown.

Severe weather is one unknown that could upend your business if you aren't mindful. The following are a few ways you can prepare your business for severe weather.

Prepare Your Facilities

Damage from tornadoes can cost your business thousands of dollars. These natural disasters break windows, blow off roofs, and damage company vehicles. Unfortunately, you can't stop a tornado from happening. To prevent significant damage to your facilities, take the following precautions:
  • Board your windows.
  • Secure items that could fly away.
  • Fix or reinforce weak areas of the building.
  • Secure business equipment.
  • Remove any outdoor displays and signage if you have advance warning.
  • Seek shelter for you and your employees immediately.
The more steps you take to reduce the impact severe weather has on your business, the less likely you'll sustain significant damage.

Buy Business Insurance

Business insurance protects you financially when it comes to severe weather. With commercial property insurance, you won't have to worry about spending capital on restoring your business. Instead, you'll make a claim against your business insurance. The insurance may cover the damage.

With business insurance, you ensure your business is back operational as soon as possible. This can prevent you from losing a lot of business revenue.

Create An Emergency Response Plan

Beyond boarding your windows and having business insurance, create an emergency response plan. An emergency response plan outlines the steps you and your employees must take during severe weather and the storm passes. With an emergency response plan, you can increase your employees' safety and reduce the financial loss your business sustains from the event.

Severe weather affects businesses just like it affects everyone else. The best way for your business to survive severe weather is to plan for it in advance.

With the correct business insurance, you can protect your assets from severe weather losses. Heritage Insurance. Ltd. is here to get you the correct policy at the right price. Call us at (800) 667-7640 for a free Saskatchewan business insurance quote.
