Running a business

Preparing a business continuity plan

Business continuity is about preparing your business to manage any disruption to ensure services to customers continue.

A business continuity plan sets out your arrangements for managing disruptions.  It helps you to anticipate, prevent or prepare for disruptions such as fire, flood or storms, computer crash or illness, and to respond and recover from them.

Preparing a business continuity plan makes your business more likely to survive an emergency or critical disruption.

The state government has a business continuity plan guide you can download to help with your planning.

The Australian Government’s Business website outlines what should be included in the continuity plan section of a broader emergency management plan. You can also download and print an emergency management plan template and guide from their website, or download and install the free MyBizShield iPad App to create your emergency management plan.
