Flooding advice for businesses
Flooding can be a disaster for a business. As well as damage to premises or equipment you may also loose stock and supplies and will be unable to trade whilst the damage is being repaired. Your employees may be unable to get to work if flooding affects the transport links, and this may affect your business.
There are measures you can take to reduce the risk and impact of flooding, and make your business more resilient. It is a good idea to put these in place so that in the event of a flood or any other kind of emergency it enables you to offer business as usual in the shortest possible time. The plan does not have to be detailed and should not take up too much of your time.
