All businesses in the UK are at risk of being affected by flooding
All businesses in the UK are at risk of being affected by flooding even if they are not near a river or the sea. Flooding is the biggest issue which may cause disruption or damage to a business, and according to estimates flooding accounts for 33% of losses to property.
Businesses can sign up to flood warnings online to be made aware if there is likely to be a flood risk in their area.
There are also a number of other ways of being as prepared as possible for floods, including drawing up a flood plan or assigning a designated member of staff to deal with flood related issues.
