Hello everyone,
Welcome to this week's newsletter.
This week's In Focus Interview is with Ross Bernston of Indium Corp and is a really interesting read. Having had previous experience of infectious episodes in the form of SARS and MERS, the company was able to rapidly instill infection controls and best practices which allowed them to enhance manufacturing workplace safety while ensuring production was uninterrupted.
Ross believes that the Covid-19 pandemic is not a Black Swan - it will happen again, so it is vital that manufacturers prepare, show flexibility and remain agile to combat future disruptions.
I completely agree with Ross; unfortunately, though this pandemic was indeed a rare and catastrophic event, we had long been forewarned of a potential pandemic causing mass disruption and chaos to society, and we can only hope that moving forwards, the world will build political and societal structures so that industry and individuals will be able to better respond to mounting random events.
If we do regard Covid-19 as a one-off or extremely unlikely occurence then the risk is that we will fail to prepare for the future impact of any similar event. However, on a positive note, we look forward to 2021 being a year of recovery and a return to a new normailty now that several vaccines have been approved and are being rolled out globally.
In the meantime, stay safe,
