ISO 22330: take care of your people, and they will take care of you

Have you read or started to use the ISO 22330 business continuity management standard? Andrew Lawton explains what it is and why it is important that organizations take notice of it.

ISO 22330, a new business continuity management standard providing ‘Guidelines for people aspects of business continuity’ was launched in June 2018, filling a gap in existing standards.

ISO 22330 takes a huge step forward in business continuity standards and is a well thought out and well put together document giving guidance on managing people before, during and after a disaster.

The standard focuses on the duty of care that organizations have, to ensure staff wellbeing at these times. It emphasises that this duty extends to psychological, not just physical, safety.
