With COVID-19 response and planning for future pandemic response, safety professionals are adding business continuity planning to their area of responsibility. It’s a natural fit for a safety-minded professional, and an opportunity to prove their worth in holistic organization operations.
The safety pro has the resources they need, and safety management systems can work nicely with a business continuity plan. The transition can be managed to keep operations running smoothly and safely, even for multi-employer worksites. Suppliers and contractors can and should be included in an organization’s business continuity plan.
