Prepare your company for these two natural disasters today
The three earthquakes we've had have been fairly small. This doesn't mean they won't get worse if others happen.
A serious earthquake could easily shake your company to its foundation if it's not strong enough.
You need to have a clear evacuation procedure to get employees out if this happens. You should also assess your building structural supports to ensure they can withstand an earthquake.
Earthquakes aren't the only problem we face however. Here's the other type of natural disaster you need to prepare for.

2. Violent storms
On Saturday the 20th of September a massive storm tore across Johannesburg. With it, it brought golf ball sized hail stones. These can do serious damage and cause major injuries.
South Africa often has violent thunder storms and in the past few years they seem to have worsened.
You need to protect your company and employees from such storms. Put shatter proof windows in so serious hail won't break the glass and have a safe area in your office where employees can get away from windows.
These are just two of the natural disasters that could destroy your company. Prepare for them today and protect your company against them.
