Resources Industry Health Crisis Management

Risk Management for Health Crisis Response

The resources industry is a major contributor to the Australian economy, with 240,000 people employed directly and 1.1 million jobs dependent on multiple sectors that directly and indirectly support the industry. It is therefore imperative that resource companies be supported in their efforts to remain operational during times when their businesses could be disrupted.

A strength of the resources sector, especially during the rise of COVID-19, has been the ability of companies to enact strict health and safety protocols, protecting staff and communities alike.

Business continuity planning has played a major role in assisting entities to continue through the global pandemic, as well as a range of localised parallel business interruptions such as cyclones, fires and floods.

A clear, comprehensive and well tested business continuity plan will give any business the best chance of overcoming a major business interruption.
