...it is important for business owners to identify secure places for employees to wait out an earthquake if they are at work when one occurs.
Fresno, California (PRWEB) September 10, 2011
California is a hub for new businesses, but one thing that deters some owners from setting up shop in the desirable region is the risk of earthquakes. Kelly-Naney Insurance Agency, Inc. has helped numerous entrepreneurs overcome this fear by providing California earthquake insurance and offering tips on what these individuals can take into consideration when readying the business’s location for its grand opening.
•In order to minimize the damage done to a business when an earthquake occurs, owners should install flexible pipe fittings that will be less likely to break and cause gas or water leaks.
- For retail shops, store large or heavy objects on lower shelves so that they won’t break or injure someone if they fall during an earthquake.
- Establish an emergency plan with workers. Many California residents go over safety strategies with their families, but it is important for business owners to identify secure places for employees to wait out an earthquake if they are at work when one occurs.
- Obtain an earthquake policy in addition to standard California business insurance coverage. These plans can help minimize the amount of money that businesses have to pay to make repairs and re-stock their inventory after an earthquake.
The local team at Kelly-Naney Insurance Agency, Inc. can provide valuable guidance for people who plan on opening a new business in California. Although obtaining proper insurance coverage and learning about earthquake safety may not be the most exciting aspects of starting a new company, they are certainly essential.
