Update: Coronavirus (COVID-19) related Risk Assessments now available in the CalQRisk Knowledgebase

Assess the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19) to your business

In response to customer requests from a number of sectors (many motivated by their regulator), we have added two new risks to the CalQRisk knowledgebase that address the threat presented by Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The first of these is Ineffective Pandemic Response. Upstream of a pandemic declaration, this risk addresses the HR and Business Continuity issues that should be considered. The second, Failure to Adequately Prepare for the Potential Impact of Coronavirus on Operations is more immediate and specific to the current, and what remains a very dynamic risk environment.

With so much uncertainty about how the situation is going to progress, and with so much information (much of it spurious) being communicated across the media, we need to be sure that the information that we are basing our business and personal decisions on is up-to-date and correct. With that in mind, we want to share our preferred information sources with you.

  • For global statistics (not just on Coronavirus (COVID-19), we like worldometer;
  • For Irish updates, see gov.ie;
  • And for practical advice on health protection for you, your family and your employees, the World Health Organisation (WHO) is a good resource.

As risk professionals, we understand that everybody has a role to play in risk mitigation. The WHO is also conveying that message in relation to preventing the spread of disease in society. Their informational document, Getting your workplace ready for COVID-19 is available for download here.

If, when you are completing the new risk assessments, you have any additional controls that you think might contribute to the overall effort to minimize the impact of the virus, please get in touch and we will arrange to share it via the knowledgebase.

Stay well.

Best regards,

The CalQRisk Team
