COVID-19: BUSINESS CONTINUITY & EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PLAN
World Wide Industrial & Systems Engineers’ (WWISE) core function of business is ensuring companies around the world follow ISO Standards and Principals. In order to be certified to ISO, a management system is required. WWISE is focused on ensuring organizations attain their ISO certification based on whichever standard they wish to engage in.
The world of work has been thrown upside down. Key challenges have been to keep businesses afloat, as well as the management of safety and security at work. This is true for both those able to work and those who will need to prepare for an eventual return.
ISO Management Systems provides useful guidance and a framework to reduce work-related risks, protect health and increase safety at work. These standards (to name a few) will address the many areas that can impact a worker’s psychological health, including ineffective communication, excessive pressure, poor leadership and organizational culture.
