"Crisis" means "danger and opportunity" in Chinese. The health and economic dangers of coronavirus (COVID-19) are obvious. Supply chain interruptions have already disrupted many operations, there is a major downturn in international and even domestic travel. Massively spreading Coronavirus is effecting the globe in different ways by drastic fall down in the economy and killing peoples and also leading to internal word wars among countries. China has meanwhile threatened openly to curtail exports of rare earth (2019) and, more recently, to send Americans "…into the hell of a new coronavirus pneumonia epidemic" by cutting off drugs and their precursors (2020). This explicit threat to the lives of our citizens and residents is a strong argument to re-shore American manufacturing capability and end dependence on the goodwill of a hostile government. Countries are trying to get over this by using multiple precautionary actions that are suppressing the spread of COVID-19 cases but the situation is not under control yet. There are many more that will be going to happen in upcoming days. OSHA has also recommended a few countermeasures. 

Join this session by expert speaker Bill Levinson, where he will discuss the COVID-19, countermeasures being taken against it, OSHA’s guideline, its Economic Impact, and Opportunities it brings. 

Session Highlights:

  • The economic risks including disruption of complex international supply chains 

  • OSHA's "Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19" (March 2020)

  •  Additional containment actions such as social distancing, etc.

  • Supply Chain Implications 

Why You Should Attend: 

By attending this webinar, the attendee will learn, first and foremost, what countermeasures are being taken, as recommended by OSHA, the CDC, and other authoritative sources, to suppress the spread of COVID-19. While nobody can predict the stock market, this suggests that the market may be oversold due to panic rather than economic realities. China makes little if anything we cannot make for ourselves, and quite possibly for a lot less once we apply off-the-shelf lean manufacturing and lean supply chain methods. The COVID-19 crisis has also forced schools and colleges to close in favor of distance education. Cancellation or postponement of conferences meanwhile creates opportunities for low-cost virtual conferencing, and the technology for virtual tourism already exists. Decision-makers should, therefore, consider these adaptations to COVID-19 as opportunities rather than inconveniences.
