How you can help your business

Statistics show that almost one in five businesses will be affected by a major disruption every year. The consequences can result in loss of customers, revenue and even the business itself.

There are ways that you can reduce the risks to your business by preparing a ‘business continuity plan’. In this you consider risks like flooding, severe weather, pandemic influenza or industrial accident and plan how you could overcome them.

Consider what would happen if you lost:

  • staff due to a pandemic influenza or other contagious disease
  • your premises due to fire or flooding or structural damage after severe weather
  • technology/ data - due to loss of power loss/ IT failure
  • supply chain due to bad weather or other factors
  • customers due to bad weather, such a prolonged heavy snow
