Emergency planning for your business

Friday 05 October 2012

With Daylight Savings starting this weekend, the summer season is fast approaching. So it's important to make sure your business is protected from emergencies, bushfires and other natural disasters.
Emergency management and recovery planning is about successfully adapting your business to changes in its environment. Natural disasters can strike without warning, so it's important to make sure your business is resilient in times of crisis.
The good thing is you don't have to plan for emergencies on your own. There is plenty of advice and support to help you.
Our Emergency management and recovery topic guides you through the steps you need to take to prepare, take action and recover from emergencies.
