COVID-19 | Business Resumption Plan Template

(page name not set)

First questions

It is recommended that these three questions be taken into account when deciding on a reopening.
Is your company located in a community where significant protection measures are no longer required?
Will you be able to restrict unneeded staff to those from the local geographic area?
Do you have protective measures for workers at increased risk (e.g. telework, tasks that minimise contact)?
If you have answered "Yes" to all three questions, you can consider reopening and proceed with the plan to resume operations.

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

Use a list to identify the threats your company may face when it resumes operations. For each threat, decide how much it could affect your business. Use the following threat levels to estimate the impact: Negligible - limited to no business interruption or property damage Minor - an obstacle that can affect business operations without that your company has a damage, it can be an event from the surrounding neighborhood Critical - temporary business interruptions or major damage to the building, impact on the general public Catastrophic - a disaster that affects the entire region, causing business disruption and forcing the closure of buildings This is an event of major proportions. It can include complete destruction, multiple injuries or deaths, and a regional event, which means that external resources are unavailable or limited for long periods of time.
