5 Safety Measures Start-ups with Tight Budgets Need to Follow

Share this

It is as good as Batman saving cities from villains without anyone knowing who it is. If you are a start-up and running on a tight budget, investing in safety can be a dilemma. However, it is not something you should compromise and is of utmost importance for any start-up, especially the one which is on the growth stage. Let’s dive into a few safety measures you as a start-up founder or a business owner with a tight budget should resort to.

1. Implement Safety Rules in Workspace

fety rules look good on paper and often feels like you have accomplished safety in workplace. However, unless implemented on a regular basis, they are as good as nothing. All your employees should be aware of the safety rules and abide by it. Initial scrutiny in terms of safety is viable and in fact, necessary for ensuring the optimal functioning of your organisation. Post it in visible places where it is accessible to your employees and they are periodically reminded of it.

2. Data Breach Recovery
Cyber-crime is increasing at an alarming rate and this puts almost every startup on the edge of a cliff. Since most organisations need to leverage the digital platform, online safety can get scary. Data breaches and hacks can incur great losses for an organisation and might even lead to shutting down the company. Disaster recovery services are built for this very purpose and ensure that not all your data is lost. Downtime losses can be huge and most companies often face heavy downtime losses. Measures in this sector need to be taken to make sure you don’t run out of business.

3. Train Your Employees
Communication between all employees is important in case of an emergency. All employees should undergo a basic training regarding safety measures. At the time of emergency, all employees should be able to rescue themselves and clients, if any, to safety immediately. A safety management plan should be mastered by all employees. It is not always about spending high budgets to ensure safety. Simple training sessions can make sure you are better off than most others in the market.

4. Cameras, Alarms and Sirens
This is something which can be accommodated even in a very small budget. This is an absolute necessity for organisations which have regular visiting of outsiders and have a risk of an intruder threatening the livelihood of a workspace. Alarms and CCTV make sure that you are fairly prepared in case of an emergency. In the case of an intruder, an emergency button can be really helpful and can alert the local police or appropriate organisation. These are smart investments that you need to make because safety cannot be compromised at any cost. You can slowly upgrade your security systems over a period of time to reduce burden all at once.

5. Update Your Software
Updating your software on a regular basis lets you stay on top of the leader board. Cyber-crime always finds loop holes and ways to breach into older versions of software. This is the reason updates are released and the older versions become as bad as being obsolete. Updated software makes sure you are running on the safest network and are not vulnerable to security breaches. Avoid using links that are not over secured connections as a lot of malicious activities happen over those networks which can harm your data. These safety measures are a helpful way for start-ups with tight budgets to make sure they do not fall behind in the digital and the physical world.

Threats can come from anywhere and you need to be prepared to handle it.
