As the COVID-19-related cases continue to surge across several countries, disrupting normal life and bringing the global economy to a grinding halt, it has become evident that collectively we are all in a new normal. That new normal is characterized by some key elements, including social distancing protocols, masks, PPE, work-from-home arrangements, and virtual meeting platforms. Several industries, and particularly services-based industries, are possibly undergoing a permanent behavioral change. Globally, organizations are bringing employees back to work during a time where the total number of COVID-19 cases has crossed the 15 million mark, the total number of fatalities has exceeded 600,000, and the risk of a second wave of cases towards the latter half of the year increases daily.
In this constantly evolving health and safety landscape that requires regular adjustments for operational strategies and processes, it has become critical for forward-looking organizations to incorporate mature and sustainable health and safety practices into all aspects of their enterprise.
Building on a foundation of more than 20 years of innovation in the field of Employee Health and Safety, and Sustainability (EHS&S) and the deep collaboration with customers over the last 5 months, ProcessMAP has developed a new framework for organizations to not only effectively manage their response to the COVID-19 pandemic but also prepare for the new normal. This new model – The Healthy Enterprise – has five key pillars that build EHS best practices across the value chain:
Organizations recognize the need for offering employees and workers a safe and healthy work environment that not only helps prevent the spread of the Coronavirus in the current environment, but also prepares the workplace for long-term health and safety. This includes reducing worker exposure to various kinds of risks and hazards such as fire, chemicals and noises, designing ergonomically correct workspaces, and adopting sustainable designs that reduce the overall environmental footprint of an enterprise’s operations.
With regards to healthy employees, organizations are not only monitoring employee wellness checks COVID-19, but also working towards the goals of zero incidents, zero accidents, zero fatalities. Inherent to these goals are the elimination of occupational illnesses and injuries, mitigation of job safety risks, and fostering of safety-driven behavior for proactive risk mitigation.
This pillar of the healthy enterprise model includes some key objectives such as ensuring operational compliance. mitigation of process safety risks, controls and governance of operational risks, and efficient as well as effective audits, inspections, verifications to proactively identify problem areas and address those problems before they turn into operational risks.
The fourth pillar of a healthy enterprise ensures healthy assets by maintaining an asset register, performing asset risk assessments, improving pre-startup safety processes, comprehensive asset inspections and compliance, and establishing standardized operating procedures.
The final pillar of a health enterprise addresses the area of a healthy supply chain by conducting supplier audits for health and safety risks, tracking their performance for long-term trends, and managing certifications to ensure adequate compliance.
ProcessMAP’s COVID-19 solutions help to address several key use-cases across each of the five pillars of a Healthy Enterprise. Some of the key COVID-19 solutions and use-cases are highlighted below.
