Business continuity and emergency preparedness
Businesses face challenges like staff absences, IT issues and temporary loss of utilities every day. However, a bigger or longer emergency can have a massive impact on a business.
Many small businesses which experience a major emergency do not survive in the long run if they don't have a business continuity plan.
Employers also have a responsibility to make sure that staff are safe and so emergency training is important.
