Major incidents affecting business
There is information relevant to businesses affected by major incidents or an emergency. This can include staff absences, IT issues and temporary loss of utilities. A bigger or longer emergency can have a massive impact on a business.

Employers also have a responsibility to make sure that staff are safe and so emergency training is important.
