The IWFM has been working together with its Risk and Business Continuity Management SIG to provide a coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance resource for workplace and facilities managers.
In a recent announcement IWFM said: “We live in challenging times. In the space of a week, our daily routines have changed dramatically.
“As workplace and facilities managers, you are among the principle agents for managing an organisation’s response to issues like coronavirus.
“Best practice in risk and business continuity management requires those with responsibility for safeguarding their colleagues and the public to stay informed and up-to-date.
“We’ve collaborated with our Risk and Business Continuity Management SIG to bring together advice and resources to help you in that responsibility.”
The institute added: “It doesn’t claim to be a definitive guide to everything, but rather a prompt on some key issues.”
Last week saw the IWFM move its national conference back by six months, it will now take place on 25 September 2020.
Regional events and face-to-face training course have also been postponed.
IWFM’s head office has also been closed until at least the end of March however it stated: “We are fully operational and very much open for business. We continue to stand ready to support your professional development in any way we can through these testing time.”
