If you think your business would benefit from ISO certification to ISO9001, ISO14001 or ISO45001, either for the first time, achieving additional certificates or transferring certification bodies, there is financial support in the form of a Covid-19 Recovery Grant.
The unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is being felt by organisations of all sizes. In such unique and extraordinary circumstances, it is vital that your organisation responds quickly yet carefully to meet rapidly changing requirements. Among various measures, this means implementing and continuously updating an effective Covid-19 policy.
We strongly recommend that you should begin to update policies, procedures, risk assessments, contracts of employment and other documents to encompass the requirements of a future pandemic.
The development of a comprehensive pandemic policy is also highly recommended. And quite possibly could become mandatory in future.
You will need a pandemic policy to meet the new requirements
As well as having an overarching pandemic policy, if you want to remain compliant to ISO standards, it is essential to perform a specific and detailed Covid-19 risk assessment as part of updating your management system.
If your business is ISO certified:
You will need to incorporate new Covid-19 requirements into your:
- Risk assessment documentation
- Policies and procedures
- Occupational Health and Safety Plan
- Business Continuity Plan
- Emergency Management Plan
- Current and future business decisions and actions
What if you’re not ISO Certified?
Every organisation should strongly consider incorporating Covid-19 requirements into its plans, policies and procedures regardless of its ISO certification status. That said, ISO compliance will prove a serious advantage when it comes to maintaining existing contracts and winning new business both immediately and in the aftermath of this pandemic crisis.
