Smaller London businesses urged to prepare for potential terror attacks

19200603659_58ae3fbc72_kSmaller companies in London have been urged to make preparations for potential terror attacks which could lead to disruption for several days.

London First believes that, while larger firms are likely to already have planned for terror incidents, small and medium-sized business should take more measures as a precaution.

This includes arrangements for staff to work from home in the event of the capital being under lengthy restrictions, as well as having enough food and drink within the workplace.

It’s also advised to organise a system to ensure of staff well-being, have security staff available on short notice, and even have backup work sites in place.

London First security and resilience director Robert Hall has been keen to stress that businesses working together as a community will provide themselves with a clear advantage in the event of a London attack.
