Risk management tips for wholesalers and retailers

Tip #1:
Losses happen, but business continuity planning can help keep your business going after a catastrophe. Stay on top of local and global events and trends to help you anticipate problems, and develop procedures to handle crises, including fires, natural disasters or data downtime.
Tip #2:
Make record keeping a top priority to help you manage the products you provide. Design records, quality control data, and test data on vendor and purchased components should be collected – these will help you ensure you deliver the best products and may play a part in helping you establish a defense in the event a customer files a claim against you.
Tip #3:
Each year, tens of millions of dollars’ worth of equipment is stolen in Canada. Having a current inventory and keeping detailed records of all equipment (and tools) used in your building and offsite will be instrumental in recovering and managing your assets.
