UK Weather ‘Snow’ Joke for Businesses
With the winter season upon us, the importance of businesses to prepare for emergencies is thrust upon us again.
Businesses should be prepared to manage the risks associated with extreme snowfall, flooding or similar and are advised to prepare a grab bag with essential items such as insurance documents and staff contact information, which can be easily accessed should the premises be evacuated or is unable to be accessed.
Employers should also be aware that harsh weather could leave staff unable to travel to work and they should evaluate the risks and provide solutions to being understaffed during this time.
