Amid the rapid spread of COVID-19 around the world, DyStar’s global operations continue to adapt to the development of the situation and to mitigate potential risks or impacts across the business. While the trajectory is unknown, DyStar is guided by recommendations from the World Health Organization and the local government authorities, to proactively address situations that could possibly affect its people and customers. “This is to ensure that we have effective plans and standard procedures to minimize the disruption of our global operations,” according to a press statement from the company.
Business Continuity Plan (BCP)
Each of Dystar’s operating sites, manufacturing plants, offices have a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) in place to sustain operations and the supply chains it serves. The BCP, owned by the Business Continuity Management Team, provides clear guidance for all local operations, such as administration, customer services, finance, logistics services, sales and technical support as well as procurement, to enable all functions to continue operating effectively to serve customers, distributors and agents.
Emergency Response Plan (ERP)
DyStar’s manufacturing sites are also installed with an Emergency Response Procedure to cover all emergency circumstances, including the COVID-19 pandemic disease. The goal of the emergency response procedure is to mitigate the impact of such events on people and the environment, ensuring operational readiness of the site during an emergency.
As the world adjusts to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, DyStar will continue to monitor the situation very closely and will provide updates that adapt to the changing situation.
