Emergency and crisis management


  • Eldgos

Are your operations prepared to unexpected crises?

Unexpected setbacks of various kinds can cause major damage to the activities of a company or institution, perhaps even causing it to close down. Preparedness and fast and effective responses are fundamental elements in ensuring that an entity will have the best possible shock endurance, that it will make a successful recovery, and that there will be continuous operation.

In order to minimize the effects of unexpected shocks to an entity that operates in a constantly changing environment, it is necessary to define the processes that will ensure preparedness for and the correct responses to crises. This involves, among other things, the formulation of contingency plans and training responses.

Verkís' specialists can provide wide-ranging advice on emergency and crisis management, along with training for such contingencies.

The company also provides consultancy service for building up contingency management, risk management, and crisis endurance according to ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management, ISO 31000 Risk Management and BS65000 Guidance on Organisational Resilience.
