As climate change becomes more noticeable, premises will increasingly be affected by severe weather events. Buildings, inside and out, can be impacted if there are any defects that need repairing or strengthening.
Even if your business comes out the other side of a storm relatively unscathed, the effect it has on utilities and infrastructure, such as public roads and transport, can make it difficult for employees to get to work and suppliers and customers may also be unable to reach you. Your business continuity plan needs to be ready so that you can react quickly.
Although we cannot change the weather there are steps you take that may reduce the risk of your business being affected.
