Businesses across UK PLC need to take action to protect themselves where ever possible from the crisis caused by Volcanic Ash. Doing nothing is not an option!

First thing on Monday morning, or better still before.

1. Check out the locations of your critical staff. Are they stranded abroad after the school holidays with no flight and no hope of a flight for at least a week? Thousands are especially if in North America!

2. Pull out that Pandemic plan you created last year, in it should be the details of their deputies, details of the location of passwords needed by their team to continuity business in their unexpected absence. Customer details, a route to their diary, electronic or desk etc, etc. (No Pandemic plan! Start a plan now!)

3. Understand the critical work they were returning to. Losing staff for the duration of this event could be equivalent to losing them to a severe bout of flu.

4. Get their team or colleagues together and protect that essential project they were working on.

5. Arrange a meeting of the organisations 'Incident Management Team' understand what the threat to business is across board. Understanding the threat enables you to deal with issues and should discount any surprises.

6. Contact critical suppliers, understand their exposure to this threat, seek alternative suppliers where possible.

7. Contact customers, can you help them? Turn a possible negative into a positive.

8. Communicate with stakeholders, don't let rumour damage your share value.

And don't forget the value of a resilient supply chain in such times of crisis. Check out
