Business continuity and emergency plans

Business continuity

Business continuity is making sure your business is ready to recover from any kind of emergency incident.

These events can be devastating for your business and staff.

The most common threats to a business are:

  • flood
  • fire
  • no access to your premises
  • serious power or utility failure

Being prepared

Having a business continuity plan will help you manage getting your business up and running and look after your staff.
