The Shippers Group Continuity Plan Policy Statement

Management has developed a pro-active approach to ensure continuity of our business in the event of major disruptions to our operations caused by factors beyond our control.

Short term disruptions such as a chemical spill, job site fire, short term weather event are addressed in our Emergency Action Plan which is available on our job sites.

This Continuity Plan is an approach to deal with the actual survival of the company during events such as “9-11”; major, longer term weather events such as the New England “Sandy” storm; and events not even imagined.
