Make sure your business facilities have all the equipment they need to deal with a disaster. It clearly indicates which emergency routes and exits are available and in which safe locations they must be. Make sure that at least every floor has a fire extinguisher or hose.

2) Train your team

Conduct small disaster protection training courses in your company. Have a brigade team in your organization who know how to deal with an earthquake and fire, manage the evacuation of the facilities, and take care of injured or panic attackers. Do regular exercises explaining how to move in an emergency, and warn you not to run or push in those cases.

3) Check your facilities

Make sure your building or office has fire exits and that the stairs and elevators are in good condition. Have an expert check the system for damage after an earthquake. If any liquid, hazardous substance, or debris is spilled during the earthquake, have it cleaned up as soon as possible. Remember, aftershocks are likely to occur.

4) Find the emergency phones

Have the number of firefighters, police, locatel, Red Cross and other relief organizations ready and post them in every office in your company.

5) Protect your data

Don’t wait until it’s too late to worry about your valuable information. Around 55% of Mexican SMEs do not have a security plan, which causes huge losses every year. Make a plan carefully and avoid these mishaps that can affect your company’s productivity or finances. Always back up your important data and buy software that specializes in that matter.

6) Rental Insurance

Try to save a certain amount of money each month to deal with these situations. If you take out comprehensive coverage insurance for your company and your employees, you will save higher costs in the future, which could lead your company into bankruptcy.
