Supply chain disruptions caused by external events can have a significant financial and operational impact on firms not properly prepared. therefore, improving disaster preparedness in supply chains is critical.
Prevention – Make sure to adhere to the guidelines related to environmental safety, storage, use and handling of your collections. Regularly inspect the building fabric in relation to your storage space and identify any past issues or potential risks. Be on alert for patterns that could lead to a disaster (e.g., leaves clogging outside drains causing water backup around basement window). Keeping everything in order can help minimize the chances of an accident occurring. Wherever possible, avoid below-ground or attic storage locations.
Preparedness – Create an ACTION PLAN! A well-crafted disaster plan is critically important if you ever encounter an emergency situation like flooding, fires, pest/mold infestations or accidents (e.g., shelving collapse). It should include tasks such as assigning staff and contacts responsible for responding/salvaging materials, setting up salvage priorities and procedures, insurance coverage information, communication protocols, payroll records and cataloging details.
Gain valuable knowledge on how to assess disasters effectively and carry out appropriate responses by taking advantage of available resources that offer training on communications and salvage techniques.
