The weather in Ireland can pose a significant risk for businesses and their employees. Irish communities have faced several extreme weather events in the recent past. These extreme weather events, such as the recent storms, have caused widespread damage and disrupted the supply of electricity and water to hundreds of thousands of businesses and households nationwide. This damage is expected to cause millions of euros to repair. In these circumstances and to minimise the impact of future extreme weather events, as employers, you should prepare and understand the practical steps that you can take to protect employees and your business.
