In Australia, natural disasters such as floods and fire can strike without warning, so it’s important to make sure your business is resilient in times of crisis.

How can you prepare your business?

Being prepared for an emergency can help you:

  • identify risks to critical areas of your business and how to best protect them
  • know what you and your staff need to do during an emergency situation
  • make sure that if the worst happens, you have the tools and support in place to help you get back to business.

If you’ve prepared well for a disaster, your business will recover more efficiently.

What to do in an emergency?

If an emergency or disaster happens, your first priority is safety of you, your employees and customers.

When faced with an emergency situation, it’s important to:

  • follow emergency procedures
  • be guided by emergency services personnel and listen to their advice if you need to evacuate
  • be aware of any immediate emergency.

Continuing your business

Business continuity allows you to keep doing business until things return to normal.
