"We need to revisit our emergency preparedness responses"
The mining industry can expect a greater focus on business continuity as it emerges from the COVID-19 crisis, IsoMetrix senior executive Cecilia Jofré told Mining Journal.
She said the pandemic had taken the industry by surprise and many executives were now being forced to "dust off" their emergency response plans and assess whether they were fit for purpose.
“Certainly, there will be a heightened awareness on public health, which is going to spill over in terms of how [mining] engages in the future," she said. "There will be new protocols we will all have to observe and that will be more of an intense look at these policies now and into the future.”
Mining Journal Stakeholder Engagement is a platform for conversation between the mining industry and key stakeholders. The programme is designed to help set a practical path to better engagement, reduced risk and better practices.
