Covid-19 Business Continuity Resources

There is a lot of clutter and incorrect information regarding the Coronavirus aka Covid-19.  As we all ‘return’ to work, executives need Good Practices to insure the organization’s Safety Culture takes this pandemic (and potential future ones) into account.

The Rapid Response Institute focuses on Operational Excellence issues, problems and processes for the Critical Infrastructure sector.  This information is part of our continuing commitment to assist or clients and others “Achieve Organizational Agility, Resiliency and Sustainability” in the Covid-19 era.

Since the Spring of 2020, the Coronavirus or Covid-19 has had a serious impact on the global society.  Other than the health crisis and devastating impact on individuals and their families afflicted by the pathogen, the livelihood and solvencies of employers and other organizations has been at risk.  The Rapid Response Institute and its Managing Director have been engaged, providing help and insight to assist individuals and organizations navigate these trying times.

In the Fall of 2020, global economies began the process of reopening amid confusion, political posturing and conflicting data that is neither valid or reliable by accepted Data Management Standards and Practices.

Over a decade ago, this firm assessed the state of Safety in the Offshore Oil & Gas operations.  The resulting Operational Excellence Platform encapsulated Safety Culture Tenets and enabled Operations Management Systems to incorporate safety processes seamlessly into decision making processes.

It is our opinion that this and future health or pathogen issues must be added to organizational safety processes and hopefully this effort will add value to that effort.
