Health, Safety & Business Continuity
In preparation for pandemics, companies should implement appropriate hygiene concepts, adapt them regularly to current conditions and evaluate them continuously as part of their in-house hygiene management system.
In 2020, the issue became particularly explosive due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Management System:

A Safe Foundation with Continuous Improvement Potential

IBCS-ANCHORED lays the foundation for certification.

This hygiene management system can either be set up, operated and monitored individually or, owing to its high-level structure, it can be used as an integrated management system together with existing systems.
As with other management systems, the starting point is the organisation, its interested parties and a comprehensive risk analysis. These parameters are used to set up a system standard with the appropriate processes and measures, which ensures that maintenance and continuous improvement are possible, for example through regular evaluation. The lynchpin of the standard is the involvement and commitment of the organisations senior management, definition of suitable qualified personnel and transparent communication with all stakeholders.
Planning & Implementation
As part of the planning process, the focus is on potential risks, for example with regard to the aspects of hygiene for people, infrastructure, air and water as well as how to deal with these. An appropriate management system ensures that organisations’ processes are designed to identify and analyse hygiene criteria and take appropriate measures. Action plans and emergency response plans ensure targeted implementation, take into account aspects such as dealing with incidents and emergencies, while ensuring business continuity in the event of an emergency.
