Pandemic Plans and Business Continuity Program
Industry Risk was engaged to assist this education provider during its response to the Influenza A (H5N1) virus outbreak, and which caused the organisation to close a South Australian Campus and consider the issue in terms of its global operations. This triggered a wider discussion on business contingency planning and continuity management, in which our expert consultants also assisted.
The emergency planning and response work delivered is best described through feedback provided by the Executive project sponsor, “The information was extremely informative and provided a significant contribution to understanding by senior managers…in retrospect, Industry Risk’s…knowledge, skills and willingness to educate non-BCM practitioners…was pivotal in the current maturity of our pandemic and business continuity arrangements. It has become clear that our response was informed, coordinated and implemented very effectively as a result of their assistance…I highly commend the work performed for us…”
