5 Human Risks in Your Supply Chain

As Rosalie L. Donlon knows in an article for PropertyCasualty360, there are risks in supply chain beyond whether you have a secondary supplier lined up for when the first line suffers a disruption. She lists five human risks. First are critically important employees, the one-of-a-kind employees who know how to fix crucial equipment on-site; if they leave the company or are absent for any reason, what will you do? Second are untrained new employees, as one-third of work-related injuries occur with workers who have been on the job less than 90 days. Develop an onboarding process to avoid this problem. The third risk is that maybe there just are not enough employees available in the first place. Fourth, protocols can be followed less stringently out and about than at home, so consider setting up video activity to monitor facilities across all shifts. And fifth, labor disputes can cause major disruptions, especially when you do not see them coming. Keep your ears open, as well as your mind.
