Many business owners think an emergency probably won’t happen to them. However, preparing your business to survive such an event is vital for every business owner.
With the frequency and severity of natural disasters increasing in Australia, it has never been more important for businesses owners and operators to be prepared for the threat of floods, fires and damaging weather.
It could also be a disaster that affects just one business, like an extended electrical outage threatening perishable stock, or cyber criminals taking over your e-commerce website.
Preparing for a disaster is simply good business. It could be the difference between your business being out of action for a few days or not re-opening at all.
The Commissioner’s Get Ready for Disasters guides help you both prepare for disasters and handle the aftermath.
