Various risks have the potential to cause extensive damage or, in some situations, completely destroy a business. Business owners must be aware of the risks that pose a threat to their organization. Potential business threats may include hazards to the physical location (such as fires), illegal substance use among employees, technology risks and strategic risks. Keep your business secure with these four simple tips.
Sharing files is common for small businesses, but it's important to do it securely to protect sensitive data.There are many cloud-based file-sharing sites, which provide a convenient way to share, edit, and access documents and information. Data security is essential to any business, so when you choose a file-sharing site, it is important to keep security in mind. Choose a file-sharing site that offers business-grade security and is easy to access remotely.
A safe working environment is essential, so you should have a plan to reduce the risks of injury. In 2019, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 2.8 million nonfatal workplace illnesses and injuries. This figure alone is strong grounds for business owners to prioritize workplace safety at all times. While accidents can happen even with the best planning, you can take these steps to cut down on the risk of an injury in your workplace.
Companies that use vehicles and fail to take fleet safety compliance seriously face significant financial, legal, and reputational consequences. According to an Occupational Safety and Health Administration report, a fleet vehicle accident can cost your business $16,500 to $500,000 – depending on the severity of injuries and damage. In total, motor vehicle crashes cost employers $60 billion each year in lost productivity, medical care, property damage, and legal expenses.
