Risk management: What measures should I be taking to help my business prepare for a possible second wave?


Numbers of daily infections are rising and businesses are beginning to gather information around how to prepare for a potential second wave scenario.

  • updating your pandemic management strategy and plan and ensuring this links seamlessly to your business continuity arrangements
  • refreshing staff communications and training on key topics, such as health and safety, information security and confidentiality
  • revisiting your risk register and ensuring you have carried out (and are addressing issues raised by) relevant risk assessments
  • reviewing your policies and procedures—ensuring they still reflect the way you do things and updating them as required
