Detailed below is an outline of Purvis Marquees policy on Business Continuity Management.
Business Continuity is often described as ‘just common sense’. It is about taking responsibility for your business and enabling it to stay on course whatever storms it is forced to weather. It is about “keeping calm and carrying on”!
BC is about building and improving resilience in your business; it’s about identifying your key products and services and the most urgent activities that underpin them and then, once that ‘analysis’ is complete, it is about devising plans and strategies that will enable you to continue your business operations and enable you to recover quickly and effectively from any type of disruption whatever its size or cause. It gives you a solid framework to lean on in times of crisis and provides stability and security. In fact, embedding BC into your business is proven to bring business benefits.
Business Continuity (BC) is defined as the capability of the organisation to continue the delivery of products or services at acceptable predefined levels following a disruptive incident. (Source: ISO 22301:2012)
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is defined as a holistic management process that identifies potential threats to an organization and the impacts to business operations those threats, if realized, might cause, and which provides a framework for building organizational resilience with the capability of an effective response that safeguards the interests of its key stakeholders, reputation, brand and value-creating activities. (Source: ISO 22301:2012)
At the heart of good BC practice, sits the BCM Lifecycle.
The BCM Lifecycle shows the stages of activity that an organization moves through and repeats with the overall aim of improving organizational resilience. These stages are referred to as the Professional Practices and are made up of Management and Technical Practices.
Purvis Marquees have a proactive approach to BCM meaning that all of our products and services are affected by the disaster management process. Our client and the general public are at the forefront of our focus with staff and equipment following closely behind.
In the event of the disaster management process being implemented then our on-site stand by teams and project manager would be on hand to ensure that structures are made safe and the event management team is provided with the relevant advice on the elements and dangers that effect the site and public. All staff members are on a 24 hour on call during site presence at an event meaning response times are very quick.
The company is capable of reacting to any level of disaster and ensuring that any areas or structures are made and maintained in a safe manner during the disaster period and the clean-up process.
