What Are Business Pandemic Planning Services?

Pandemic planning is a crucial part of ongoing continuity planning and risk management. It works to increase an organization’s ability to respond quickly and effectively to internal and external threats, like those caused by the outbreak of an infectious disease.

Challenging times have always plagued human history. Infectious outbreaks – such as smallpox, influenza, and cholera – have periodically caused national and international crisis for as long as we can look back. Coronavirus (COVID-19) is the most recent outbreak affecting businesses on a worldwide scale.

Though it can seem like a far-off threat, infectious diseases, like the coronavirus, are considered a serious enterprise risk. Pandemics have wide-reaching impact on a population’s health, as well as local and global economies, and affect all aspects of enterprise. Measures taken to prevent the spread of a contagion include restricting travel, limiting contact with others, and encouraging workers to stay home. What does this mean for organizations affected by a pandemic?

The Importance Of Specialized Continuity Planning

Preparation and planning are the best disaster prevention and risk management tools that organizations have at their disposition. When it comes to pandemics, continuity plans should include:

  • Appointing a pandemic coordinator or team,
  • Telecommuting or remote working capabilities and policies,
  • Delegated resources and staff,
  • Emergency communications plan,
  • Plans for handling quarantines, border closures, and travel bans,
  • Programmed awareness and training,
  • Implemented testing of the plan.
