Pandemic concerns and general best practice guidance

During times of a crisis, companies should focus on employee health and safety, guest and patron safety and security, crisis management, crisis communication and business continuity planning.

Crisis events, man-made and natural disasters often impact a limited location or part of the world. During a pandemic like Covid-19, disease outbreaks may occur simultaneously in different locations. Influenza and other viral pandemics have occurred increasingly over the last twenty years, propelled by the highly connected global economy.

Many companies may act by limiting and even temporarily stopping operations, whereas some organisations are unable to take such measures. While different crisis events require variations in response, some general best practices apply to most business operations.
