Building resilience through a pandemic
Like all businesses, GroundTruth Consulting are taking enhanced precautions to protect our employees, our customers and stakeholders from the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These are now embedded in daily operations for ensuring our duty of care.
Our team have longstanding expertise in managing operational risk and working in challenging and fast-moving environments. For us all, learning to adapt our thinking, processes and behaviours in the face of a global threat is key to keeping people safe, as well as securing the future of their jobs and the organisations they work for.
As we have seen, changes to guidelines and tier restrictions can come into force very rapidly, directly impacting operations for the majority of businesses. Being able to rapidly adapt to these changes, while keeping additional costs at a minimum, is a major factor in business resilience.
One of the biggest risks for noncompliance is failure to share information in ways that ensure all employees have received and understood the requirements. Simply performing a risk assessment is not enough.
The SARS-CoV-2 Secure Workplace Plans we have in place have been critical for enabling our ‘business as usual’ operational status. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have been providing training support to government key workers, and working with our clients to help them achieve ‘best practice’ SARS-CoV-2 secure business operations.
We are able extend this expertise to clients via our SARS-CoV-2 Secure Workplace Analysis.
Our focused risk management service provides a detailed audit of your business’s SARS-CoV-2 risk assessment, policies and planning to allow continued operation, taking into account the specific needs of your business and restrictions in your area.
The service includes:
- Detailed site visits to examine existing procedures and policies and ensure these translate to the ‘shopfloor’
- A detailed report on our recommendations
- Operational/contingency plans covering all tier restriction eventualities to enable rapid adaptation to changes
- Provision of clear pre-set communications assets for informing the workforce of changes to ensure smooth transitions
- Additional site or video calls to follow up and answer questions.
With enhanced workplace security practices likely to be required for the foreseeable future, please do contact us to find out more about how we can help you to build such resilience into your business for 2021.
