Sustaining operations in a COVID-world and beyond

Online Webinars

In collaboration with IRO member International SOS, we will host a webinar titled “Sustaining operations in a COVID-world and beyond” on Thursday 4 February.

COVID-19 has also affected the offshore & maritime sector worldwide and the pandemic appears to be continuing for a while:

  • How can an organization ensure that business operations are compromised as little as possible?
  • How do you deal with employees with mental problems as a result of lockdowns and stress?
  • What does a vaccination program look like and what role can an employer play in it?
