Managing risk, supporting your people

Using R4L’s Covid-19 testing risk management system

The long-term economic impact of the pandemic is unknown. By taking a risk-based approach to the crisis, businesses are better able to continue delivering essential services, and prepare for return to full operation post lock down.  It also enables businesses to prepare for future disruption in the coming 18 months and beyond.

Our risk management system allows businesses to assess, monitor and take a risk-managed approach to the current pandemic which is likely to directly impact on business over the next 18 months.

Recovery4life have developed a risk management system. This system includes two types of testing for Coronavirus. The objective is to support business continuity, particularly key staff, either keeping them in work or helping them to get back to work asap, in line with Government guidance.

The risk management system works by ruling out Covid-19, getting people back to work with as little disruption as possible. The testing is applied as part of a wider assessment of ‘people risk’ which means that you will be able to create baselines against which you can identify and measure trends, addressing risks to your operations as they emerge.

The system involves a 4-stage process:

  1. Individual assessment of symptoms (risk to the business)
  2. Individual assessment of underlying health conditions and medications (risk to the individual)
  3. Other factors (social and family risks such as having a partner in a high-risk role/carer or child-care responsibilities)
  4. Job role (to assess alternate roles, key functions and potential single points of failure)

Every business has different needs and unique baselines which will be impacted by issues. These issues may include key roles as well as demographic issues, including the age of workforce. Testing is used to both identify these pressure points and to monitor trends as they emerge.

By collaborating with you. we will support and advise your teams at all stages. We will audit how the system is being used and provide feedback and additional training where appropriate.
