Monitor business recovery using a checklist

Once a crisis has passed and it is safe to return to your premises, there are a number of steps you may need to take.

Why you should use a checklist

Having key actions written down means you don't need to spend time trying to remember important steps. Checklists also support task delegation.

As part of your recovery plan, a checklist can support your assessment of the extent of any damage after a crisis and help you monitor the recovery process.

This checklist supports you to customise the checklist in your business continuity plan.
