Business Risk Assessment

There are lots of different types of disasters and hazards that can occur. In your risk assessment, you need to identify the potential hazards and what could possibly happen if the said hazard did occur to your business.

For example, if you live in Southern California, what would you do if an earthquake damaged your car dealership? If you live in Tulsa, what would you do if a tornado ripped apart your restaurant? You shouldn’t be afraid or paranoid but you need to be prepared.
