While we’re hearing some very encouraging news about COVID-19 vaccines, it’s important to remember that the approval and distribution of a vaccine is going to take some time. How long? Honestly, I don’t know. But I do know that we will not be able to miraculously flip a switch one day and resume our pre-pandemic activities.
As business professionals, we will still be responsible for managing a safe workplace for our employees. Some of the processes we have in place might be around for most of next year. Maybe even longer. I thought it could be helpful to put in one place a list of articles that you might want to keep handy.

One of the things that occurred to me while I was putting this list together is that these articles could serve as a roadmap for an emergency plan. I’m sure that doing some sort of debrief is on the company’s to-do list, but it might not have happened yet. It could be too early to do a full debrief of everything that’s taken place over the past year.
When the time is right, think about how these articles might help the organization develop an emergency plan or audit an existing plan. Our next emergency might not be a pandemic, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have something in place to make sure employees and customers are safe.
