Chapter 4: Building a Risk Management Plan for Your Cleaning Business

As you've seen, small business insurance policies can shoulder the burden of financial loss and help your business survive disaster. But insurance policies can't prevent accidents from happening. That's why effective risk management plans combine insurance policies with proper risk-mitigation techniques.
