Organisations Encouraged to make Business Continuity Plans this Humber Business Week

Running a business is not always predictable and emergencies can happen, sometimes unexpectedly.  Every business should have some level of business continuity plan.

Humber Emergency Planning Service and its partners are urging businesses and organisations across the Humber region to have business continuity plans in place to ensure they can continue to operate in an emergency situation.

The HEPS works closely with a number of partner organisations to ensure they’re ready to respond in an emergency situation and is encouraging businesses to take the same approach.

Emergencies can take various forms, from buildings being destroyed by fire to the flooding experienced during December 2013 tidal surge, when homes and business properties were affected.

In any such situation, business continuity is vital. Business continuity is about having common sense precautions in place to help survive a disruption and recover afterwards.

Some of the key benefits that business continuity can bring include:

  • Having arrangements in place for the businesses to fulfil its obligations in a crisis.
  • Reassuring customers and suppliers about the resilience of the business
  • Providing assurance and protection to staff
  • Safeguarding and increasing the company’s reputation.
  • Making savings on insurance premiums.

You can find information and resources  on this website to help you make your business continuity plan.
