Safety inspectors, business regulators, and enforcement officers love showing up unannounced most of the time. When this happens, small business owners are often taken aback with the sudden inspection. Sometimes, frustration gets the best of a number of small business owners because they are unprepared and do not know what to do.
So, what is the best way of handling this kind of situation? Bloomberg Businessweek has the following advice to give.
– Always be positive.
– Try not to panic if the visit did not go very well.
– Answer questions honestly, and follow up with any requirements punctually.
– Take advantage of the free professional help that is currently available.
– Do not shilly-shally to seek other professional assistance if needed.
