Business Continuity and Contingency Planning
November 9 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST
An event every 4 days that begins at 1:00 pm, repeating until 11/12/2020
MassMEP’s “Business Continuity and Contingency Planning” is designed for companies who are interested in the assistance of the development, implementation, and maintenance of a process to mitigate risk to business due to unforeseen circumstances (i.e. COVID-19). The course will provide a company’s personnel with a) Training towards Risk Management, b) Establishing methods of risk mitigation with consideration towards personnel, customers, the supply chain, policies and procedures, and c) Instructions on establishing and implementing a Business Continuity and Contingency Plan.
Employers instituting measures of assessing risk and thorough implementation of emergency preparedness and/or business continuity plan can help prevent disruptions to health, safety, and the supply chain by being able to answer:
- How will this affect interested parties?
- What operations are effected?
- Who has the authority to communicate?
- When are the actions taken?
- Where operations can continue?
When an organization proactively plans to avoid and mitigate any risk associated with the disruption of its activities, the organization is better prepared to handle unforeseen challenges. Though not strictly pertaining to just coronavirus, a business continuity/contingency plan determines detailed steps to issue guidance on how to move forward by utilizing existing means of control, training, and management of operations when the risk has been established. This will assure interested parties (customers, vendors, etc.) that your organization is able to remove obstacles and have secondary methods to ensure product or service is uninterrupted.
This 16-hour training course is designed for personnel at all levels of the organization.
