OFB-EZ® – Business Continuity Planning Toolkit


The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) has developed a new streamlined business continuity program for small businesses that may not have the time or resources to create an extensive plan to recover from business interruptions called OFB-EZ® (Open For Business-EZ).

OFB-EZ® is a free toolkit designed to help even the smallest businesses focus on planning for any type of business interruption. OFB-EZ is  available as a downloadable Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) toolkit and as individual module forms in both Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) and Word formats (links below) that can be filled in and printed for safekeeping.

OFB-EZ Mobile guides users through an easy process to create a recovery plan that will help even the smallest business recover and re-open quickly after a disaster. The app includes several helpful planning tools, such as evaluation checklists to help business users understand their risks and forms for users to enter and store important contact information for employees, key customers, suppliers, and vendors.
