The global health crisis that the business community currently faces, is creating unprecedented organisational and personal uncertainty.  
Organisations are facing great challenges with effectively managing their business continuity and security risks. Business continuity plans in the main have not been designed to protect business operations and their people in this COVID catastrophe.
COVID is impacting and testing every part of organisational resilience. 

This webinar will present the operational planning and resourcing strategy adaptation that needs to be employed to deal with the changing health, industrial. supply chain and workplace conditions and scenarios. It will look at the security considerations and strategies that need to be considered and implemented for operational plans.
This webinar will not address financial matters, rather, the operational context. 
To address this concern, the Australian Institute of Health and Safety and Art of Work have organised an interactive expert forum webinar focussed where we will bring together expertise and learnings from leaders here and overseas.


When: Wednesday 1 April  2020
Time: 1:00pm (Melbourne Time)
