Planning and preparation

Overall, we’ve seen that companies have made efforts to review and update their emergency procedures and plans, taking on board lessons not only from winter, and in some cases from the hot summer too. It’s positive and very important that companies’ senior management teams have been actively involved and owned the plans. This must continue.

Companies have focused on maintaining and improving their infrastructure and systems, and good progress has been made on providing different sources of water (such as bottled water, or bowsers) – ensuring companies have enough available should they need it.
