TAS Safely Maintaining Production Operations during COVID-19

Essentially every organization or business in the world has some sort of risk management or business continuity plan – however, many of them are never forced into action.

In the wake of the spread of the novel coronavirus and the global COVID-19 pandemic that’s followed, those plans have been put to the test, often for the first time.

At TAS, we’re proud to say that we’ve yet to miss a single day of production during this unprecedented period. This goes well beyond being labeled an “essential” business – it’s a testament to the risk management plan we’ve developed to protect the health and safety of our employees and to our team’s diligent efforts in putting that plan into action.

How TAS Has Navigated COVID-19 and Remained Agile in Addressing Risk Management

In engineering this response to the COVID-19 pandemic and working diligently to keep everyone in the TAS family safe, we’ve identified several best practices that have allowed us to keep pace with the shifting landscape of the pandemic.

Let’s explore some of those pillars of business continuity and risk management:

Swift, Organization-Wide Collaboration

When it became apparent that an organization-wide plan of action was necessary, TAS leadership from across every aspect of our business came together to form a response team. That team met every day to go over developments and ensure the company’s response was the right one for each change in the overall landscape of this uncertain period.

Taking Robust Precautionary Measures

TAS has weighed and implemented many recommended safety precautions, including temperature screening, social distancing, careful zoning of employees, diligent contact tracing, and the provision of PPE, such as masks, that meet the recommended best practices of health experts. We’ve also committed to going at least one step beyond those recommended precautions, providing an additional layer of safety for our team.

Continued Communication

Throughout the pandemic, TAS has orchestrated cross-functional collaboration from the executive level downward, ensuring that each and every person in the organization is aware of the steps being taken to keep the TAS family safe. We’ve also diligently communicated with our network of manufacturing partners to share insights and coach best practices designed to protect our entire ecosystem.

Flexibility and Agility in the Face of Changing Data

No business continuity plan is adequate if left alone in the face of shifting information and expectations. At TAS, we constantly take in new information and have been careful and extremely particular in sourcing that information to make sure we’re always acting on the most up-to-date and trustworthy recommendations.
