Business Continuity Flood Assessment

The impact of flooding can be potentially devastating for businesses through loss of revenue, products, and equipment. After the recent floods of 2007, research carried out by the British Standards Institute showed that two-thirds of UK businesses are still under prepared for the effects of flooding.

Enzygo’s staff has helped several businesses plan for the unexpected eventuality of flooding. Flooding is the second highest insurance risk to fire. Using our proven methods we can reduce insurance premiums and provide mitigation plans to safeguard infrastructure and critical areas within your business. Our assessments can be used to form or augment part of your BS 25999: Business Continuity Management plan.

Many businesses are not prepared for forced office relocation, supply chain failure and infrastructure failure. This aspect is increasingly raising towards the top of the business agenda with the introduction of BS 25999, the British Standard on Business Continuity Management.

Enzygo provides Business Continuity Flood Assessments (BCFAs) enabling business to continue operating or reduce the risk of damage/protect key infrastructure and assets. Core to our assessments are the following:

Identification of critical assets and infrastructure at risk (e.g. IT systems; electrical control infrastructure, power distribution)

Estimation of the likelihood of flood depths and velocities at specific locations

Definition of procedures and production of emergency response plans.

Specification of flood protection products and sourcing of suppliers

By preparing for flooding this can provide the following benefits

Allowing continuity during a flood event

Rapid response plans and mitigation

Speeding-up reaction times and responsiveness

Reducing risks from flooding

Reducing down-times and loss of sales

Identifying critical supply chain vulnerabilities

Enzygo staff have produced Business Continuity Flood Assessments and protection plans for the following areas:
