Flooded city streetWhen severe weather strikes, the aftermath can be devastating. Overturned homes and buildings, downed power lines and injuries all affect your ability to continue business operations. Choosing to ignore the potential damage severe weather can have on your business facilities exposes your business. The following are measures you can take to protect your business and employees during severe weather.

Protecting Your Employees

Your employees are your greatest asset. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to meet production demands. The first measure to protect your business is to ensure that your employees understand what is required of them during severe weather crises. By establishing an inclement weather policy, your employees will know what to do and how to do so safely.

To keep your business operations going, you could choose to have a remote operations plan that allows your employees to continue working from home.

Protecting Your Facilities

From tornadoes to hurricanes, there are many types of severe weather that can bring your operations to a halt. When you know what measures to take for each storm, then you have the ability to minimize the damage your facilities sustain.

Install Physical Protections

There are many protections available to defend against severe weather. From window bars to safe rooms, you want to make sure that your facilities are secure during a storm. By incorporating physical safety measures, you can protect both your employees and your facilities. Research the following to protect your business:

  • Anchoring the roof
  • Secure windows and doors
  • Eliminate structural weaknesses
  • Install flood shields and barriers
Establish Data Protection Measures

Your business relies on data to operate on a day-to-day basis. When a storm strikes, it’s too late to take measures to protect your company’s data. Instead, work to create a data recovery plan before the storm strikes so that your business can continue operations after the storm passes.

Get Business Insurance for Your Property

Think of your insurance provider as something of a business partner. With the right insurance protections, your agent can help you get your business up and running following damage from severe weather. Not only does commercial property insurance help you with the financial aspect of recovery, but your experienced insurance agent serves as an advisor. They can guide you through the process of recovering, which helps you get your business restored quickly.
