Resources to Protect Your Business During Civil Unrest
During periods of civil unrest, businesses may face increased risks. The Risk Management Team at Rose & Kiernan, Inc. would like to help businesses mitigate these risks as best as they can, as they can damage property, disrupt operations and threaten employees. We’d like to share a resource from Chubb, a leading commercial lines insurer. Download their “Best Practices for Civil Unrest Planning Checklist.”
Also, we’d like to give a few quick notes of advice for businesses to:
- Whenever you think that civil unrest is on the horizon, communicate with your employees as soon as possible to both express concerns, remind them to practice situational awareness and provide guidance to ensure their safety.
- Remember to protect all of your facilities. This includes making sure employees are alert, testing burglar and fire alarm systems, briefing all security personnel, assessing all points of entry, and removing any combustible materials from the exterior of your facilities.
- Make sure that your vacant premises are secured and take steps to limit damage.
- Keep your business continuity plan in mind. Make sure that it is updated, and if you don’t have one, make one! This includes preparation steps to limit losses, emergency response procedures and actions to recover and get back on your feet.
