The COVID19 crisis resulted in many establishments having to rapidly curtail, stop work, or drastically alter their working practices. It will be beneficial that the AWERB reviews the processes that were in place during the crisis, and their outcomes, not only in the event of similar future episodes, but also in reference to more general disaster management plans in case improvements can be made. This will support future business continuity, as well helping in the delivery of AWERB tasks.
In reviewing the issues and possible resolutions for the future, AWERBs should consider sharing the experiences of their establishments more widely, as well as looking at how others dealt with the situation via mechanisms such as the AWERB Hubs and industry-related organisations.
LASA hopes you find this resource useful and encourages it to be shared more widely within your establishments and networks.
