Business Continuity Planning Checklist (Planning For Emergencies)

Workplaces legally need to have a plan in place for emergencies that can have a wider impact – like serious injuries, explosions, floods, poisoning, electrocution, and power outages.

This is where clear emergency procedures and solid business continuity planning come in. Getting these right can make sure you can handle the situation correctly in the moment, reduce disruption, deliver any critical functions, and protect your business during and after the event.

To help, our experts have put together a quick free guide to business continuity plans (BCPs) – why they’re needed, what information they contain, and how to create yours.

If you’d like to go one step further and have greater peace of mind you’ve got everything covered should the worse happen, we’ve got a 12-page template document covering the 10 important sections your policy should cover.
