Things to do When Setting Up A Business

Starting a new business is no easy feat and chances are, you have a very long checklist of tasks that must be completed before you open the doors to the public. Though all of these tasks are important, you should take some time to ensure that your new business will be protected during operations. Here are a few things to consider

Security

Ensuring that all your hard work is protected day and night should be a top priority. Doors should be kept locked outside of hours of operation. The more security measures, the better. These may include an alarm system, deadbolts, outdoor lighting, security cameras, ID card entry systems and window break sensors. Consulting with a security professional can prove helpful in safeguarding your business.

Fire Safety

Whether a fire ignites due to a lightning storm or an incident with the break room microwave, the effects can be devastating. Equip the building with fire safety gear to reduce to risk of severe loss — of property and life — in the event of a fire. This may include the addition of smoke alarms, fire sprinklers, fire extinguishers and carbon monoxide detectors throughout the building. Also be sure to train your staff on escape routes and the use of this equipment.

Business Insurance

Even when you take precautions against damage and loss, incidents can still occur that impact your business’ finances. Talk to your agent about your concerns. He or she can help you build a comprehensive business insurance policy to protect your company against a variety of incidents, including property damage, liability risks and employee fraud.
