The Emergency Planning Unit is promoting business continuity both within the city council and in local businesses and voluntary organisations in Southampton.
It is important to consider in advance the various risks that your organisation might face which could impact upon the delivery of regular service. Risks such as I.T. and power failure, fire and transport disruption can affect businesses throughout the year and impacts such as sickness, flu and winter weather can impact on a seasonal basis. The questions and documents on this page provide some initial information for your consideration.
Hampshire Local Risks
The Hampshire & IOW Local Resilience Forum has a risk assessment sub-group, whose role has been to assess a wide range of hazards and threats which may apply to Hampshire. The group have published the outcomes as a Community Risk Register (CRR).
A link to the Hampshire and IOW Community Risk Register can be found below.
Southampton Local Risks
The Hampshire-wide CRR caters for the vast majority of hazards, many of which may affect the City of Southampton and generate a multi agency response.
There will be other hazards of a lesser nature or of lesser outcomes which will affect only the City and which will be catered for by unique or existing plans within the Council and the Emergency Services.
