Risk Avoidance Example

Risk avoidance example With risk avoidance, small business owners won’t run their company in a way that puts them at a specific risk. For example, you may realize sending employees to work at a customer’s home can open your business to more risk of bodily injury, vicarious liability or property damage claims. So, to reduce risk and avoid potential losses, you decide not to offer those kinds of services.

Risk Reduction Example

Risk reduction Risk reduction involves taking actions to mitigate your business’ risks. There are many types of risk reduction strategies. For example, you invest in more equipment to help you operate your small business. Without these tools, it’d be difficult to run your company. However, this equipment can get damaged or stolen, which can put your entire business at risk. Having commercial property insurance can help you reduce your risks. Or if your equipment breaks down due to internal failure, equipment breakdown coverage can also reduce your risk.
