Four Steps to Creating an Effective Business Continuity Plan

A successful business starts with implementing an effective continuity plan. Careful analysis of your market will help you realize your potential even during tough times.

Here’s a four-step plan that works:

  1. Identify risks. Well-known competitors, natural disasters, untrustworthy employees and other factors could destroy your business. What kind of obstacles do you have to face?
  2. Analyze your impact. For instance, do you have the people, equipment and resources to run a useful operation? How positively will it affect the area where you establish it?
  3. Set up emergency precautions. You can’t always prevent fires, but you can do your best to stop them from spreading when they do occur. Place exists, extinguishers and escapes where needed. Practice emergency drills once in a while, too.
  4. Continually test your plans. Make quarterly or yearly assessments of your property’s physical condition and your company’s financial state. Then, make modifications whenever necessary. 

Part of accessing your risk involves purchasing the right liability coverage. For more help on choosing a policy that’s right for your company, please contact 1st Community Insurance.
