Your business is your livelihood and also an important part of your community and the lives of your employees and customers. As a business owner and employer, you have an obligation to provide a safe workplace for staff, visitors, clients and contractors.

Having an emergency management and recovery plan (EMP) that clearly outlines the steps to take in case of a crisis can help you prepare for and recover from unpredictable situations such as a fire, flood or burglary, that can disrupt your business or even prevent it from operating.

It’s important to make sure you include everything you need to in your EMP but there’s no need to try to figure this out yourself, thanks to the MyBizShield app from business.gov.au.

The free app provides a template to help you get started and guides you through the process of creating a thorough EMP.

It was developed with the help of business and safety experts and provides handy tips, options to back up and easily access or send your plan, as well as the ability to remove sections that don’t apply to your business, helping you tailor your EMP to your needs.

Download the free app here and take the first step towards protecting your business and your staff today.
