Free COVID-19 business assessment tool

19 May 2020

An Australian company has played a key role in the development of a new toolkit to help businesses around the world reopen their doors safely after the COVID-19 lockdown.

The free assessment tool has been developed and released by the Johns Hopkins Centre for Health Security in Baltimore which provides knowledge and resources to support prevention and response to public health crises such as COVID-19. RiskLogic, an Australian crisis management and business continuity firm was the only Australian entity to be included in the development process.

The toolkit provides businesses with an easy-to-use assessment calculator to measure the risk of transmitting COVID-19 under their ‘business as usual’ procedures and provides practical mitigation strategies to reduce those risks to a workable level.

RiskLogic’s Dr Rebecca Hoile said, “as Australian businesses and organisations prepare to operate in ‘the new normal’, it was an opportunity to provide relevant and timely input into a resource that enables businesses to remain agile as we deal with the next phase of this pandemic. They wanted to ensure their toolkit aligned to best practice business continuity strategies being implemented across a variety of organisations" which is "now available for any business around the world."

“It is understandable that CEOs and boards, who have minimal expertise in pandemics and infection control, are seeking expert guidance with how to best protect their staff, customers and suppliers when they reopen."

“This toolkit can help them assess and minimise potential health risks and get back to business safely, and with confidence,” Dr Hoile said.

RiskLogic runs more than 200 exercises every year around the world to ‘stress test’ the ability of businesses to respond to and recover from disruption, disaster and crisis. They have recently released a COVID-19 Pandemic Roadmap to help businesses navigate the management, recovery and review phases of the pandemic. The Roadmap aligns with the National COVID-19 safe workplace principles and resources developed by Safework Australia.
