Risk comes from many sources inside and outside your business. Risk management strategies include evaluating your risk factors and reducing as many risks as possible. You can’t eliminate all potential risks, however, so you also need to create a risk management plan for those hazards you can’t avoid.
- Evaluate Your Risk – It is never too early to evaluate potential risks. As you create your business plan for your new company you can assess, evaluate, and plan for risks in all aspects of your organization: production, marketing, human resources, and real estate.
- Liability Insurance – After you have completed your risk evaluation, you should determine the types of business insurance coverage you need to protect your company, including liability insurance.
- Create a Plan – Purchasing liability insurance isn’t the only aspect of managing risk. You should also create a risk management plan that lists each potential risk and outlines how your company intends to handle each risk.
- Train Your Employees – Part of your risk management plan should include training your employees about company risk management policies. This way if a risk should develop, employees can take steps right away to help mitigate the risk.
- Update – Your company’s risk management plan, insurance coverage and employee training should be routinely evaluated and updated to make sure it is relevant to the company’s current needs and potential risks.
