The global COVID-19 pandemic

The global COVID-19 pandemic has fast become the biggest global event of our lifetimes. Our experiences; as customers, employees, citizens, humans are forever changed, and our attitudes and behaviors are changing as a result.
Global businesses across most industries are under immense pressure due to the COVID-19 crisis. The work flow in some businessesare severely disrupted where CEOs across the globe are coming to terms with the reality that business will be anything but normal over the coming months as the impact of the coronavirus pandemic continues to escalate.

As DQS is analyzing the situation, it believes that the organizations must respond rapidly to maintain continuity and to safeguard and de-risk their operations to serve their businesses now, and to position them for growth post-COVID-19.

Therefore, we recommend the organizations to make their global business services more resilient for the challenges of today and tomorrow by refreshing their memory about the importance of certifications whether they obtain it or need to obtain:

– The ISO 45001 OH&S can ensure that the employees are operating in a secured environment and that they are protected from being infected with the virus.Making the environment and the employee safer.

– ISO 31001 Risk Management standard that can help the company identifies control and mitigate risks, where companies anticipate the situation and develop action plans to address these risks in a more systematic way.

– ISO 22301 Business Continuity that helps with contingency planning and disaster recovery to be able to restore the company’s productivity as well as to control the damage resulted after Covid-19.
