Crisis management is the use of plans developed to assist an organization cope with a sudden and significant unwanted occasion.
A catastrophe is an unpredictable event, or an unforeseeable outcome of any event considered a risk. In any circumstance, crises almost always demand viable decisions to mitigate damages to business.
The essence of the damage varies dependent on the essence of the emergency. However, a catastrophe can affect health or security, the business’s financing, the business’s standing, or any mix of them. A catastrophic COVID-19 outbreak might be a catastrophe that places the company’s finances in peril. When a COVID-19 outbreak occurs, it jeopardizes the health and safety of employees, clients, patients, community. Contagions contaminate infrastructures; its surfaces become a biohazard for cross contamination - everything is in harm’s way.
Organizations of all industries facing a COVID-19 crisis can become vulnerable to its perils. A crisis might take an unpredictable course, derive from different influencing reasons, or have another impact scale. We associate it with disruptions with a firm’s functions and might lead to adverse effects. It can also threaten organization existence by stopping it to attain its objectives. To prevent, expect, and react to emergencies as soon as they occur, anti-crisis direction is essential. However, if it is impossible to avoid a crisis, then it’s necessary to use steps to minimize its negative effects.
Anti-crisis management concentrates on the measures applied prior to, during, and following a crisis. It is a procedure, which expects the danger of crisis, investigates symptoms, measures limiting the adverse consequences of the crisis, and uses its own variables to continue the development process. Effective biohazard remediation requires Anti-crisis management process comprising four factors: Testing, Contact-Tracing, Monitoring, & Decontamination.
Vulnerable businesses without an anti-crisis management program will find it difficult to defend against COVID-19 litigation by employees & clients. The future of class action lawsuits may be inevitable, frontier jeopardizing all industries, and an anti-crisis management protocol may never be more important now than it has ever been. A pandemic’s progression into the second wave will cause higher fatalities, escalation of health & general liability insurance premiums, businesses deemed high risk might face policy cancellation, and those losing in a lawsuit will go bankrupt if it is uninsurable.
Organization’s neglect to invest in the preventive side of crisis management, appearing to be not aligning with employees and patron priorities to protect their health & safety might subject itself to significant damages. A workplace culture that resonates with the values of employees and patrons is instrumental in its success to thrive. Virus Geeks proprietary, patent pending anti-crisis management program solves the need to protect the health and safety of employees and clients, and it might prevent litigation before it begins.
Viruses are here to stay, its management is inevitable, the important decision is do we do something now about it, or later when it’s too late?
Preparing for the 2nd wave
New coronavirus clusters are surfacing around the globe as countries struggle to balance reopening economies and preventing a second wave of infections, while WHO health official warns the coronavirus may never go away.
Why wasn’t anyone ready for the virus?
1918 was the last virus pandemic and because it was 102 years ago, it’s not a part of an organization’s health and safety policy. The coronavirus is a resilient, resistant germ, and because of its fast mutating behavior, developing a vaccine anytime in the immediate future is a tough challenge.
How can virus management prevent my business from a shutdown?
During April 2020, after the discovery of infected employees at Tyson Foods, the largest meat processing plant in the United States shut down two dozen of its plants.
Because environmental testing is proactive and it does not require testing people, but a few surfaces, its early detection could have mitigated the spread of COVID-19, reducing the negative impact to operations, spare its reputation, and save the company tens of millions of dollars.
Isn’t testing people for coronavirus more effective than environmental testing?
A person testing negative today can become infected tomorrow; testing hundreds of millions of people is cost prohibited, and it limits resources. Environmental testing is a bottom up approach; “if we locate the pollen, we find the bees.”
Identifying the route of virus transmission is impossible, if limitation is person-to-person analysis. An infected person with no knowledge of whom they contracted the virus from likely picked up the virus from a contaminated surface.
Virus Optics is the only comprehensive management system that offers real-time coronavirus environmental testing, monitoring, disinfection, and contact tracing help. Routine testing’s early detection provides the data to eliminate a threat. Contact tracing helps to mitigate the contagion - all in a confidential, HIPPA compliant, managed solution.
How often should we test a surface for coronavirus?
“Hot Spots” require more routine testing than “Warm” or “Gold Spot”, and high-traffic areas more so than low frequent areas. It requires an analysis to determine testing interval.
What are the benefits of virus management?
Virus management eliminates the hardship experience of a complete closure, preserves trust, confidence in the organization's ability to manage a health, safety crisis, it reduces labor & health care costs, reducing potential negative repercussions.
