Agribusiness continuity planning
19 November, 2021
It is expected that COVID-19 cases will appear throughout Queensland as its borders start to open up to domestic and international visitors. This presents an increased risk to agribusinesses and the supply of food and fibre, due to potential staff absences and lockdowns to manage cases. It is important that agribusinesses put in place measures now, including business continuity planning, to minimise the impacts on their operations.
Business continuity planning involves developing a practical plan for how your business can prepare for, and continue to operate after a COVID-19 incident. A business continuity plan will help you to:
- identify and prevent, or reduce, risks where possible
- prepare for risks that you can’t control
- respond and recover if a COVID-19 incident occurs.
