The Disaster Preparedness and Resilience Branch (DPRB) provide oversight and support for the Business Continuity Management policy, program and governance.
SA Health is required (as with all SA government departments) to plan for and implement sound Business Continuity strategies, should they be impacted by a business disruption.
Business Continuity is closely aligned to emergency management as many (but not all) causes of business disruptions may relate to either internal and/or external emergencies.
Business Continuity also aligns closely with risk management, as a robust risk assessment process should see the majority of business disruption related risks identified, communicated and mitigated as part of ‘best practice’.
Important of Business Continuity Management
Business Continuity is essential for ensuring that SA Health can respond to and recover from any business disruption to ensure that it can meet its organisational objectives and continue to delivery critical / essential services in a timely manner.
Business disruptions can often be summarised as a “loss of…”, as described by the list below:
facility / site / work area
personnel / workforce
information, communication and technology services
essential services (for example gas, water, power)
It is the responsibility of the Department for Health and Wellbeing, Local Health Networks and other individual entities of SA Health to ensure that they have robust business continuity planning arrangements, current plans and thoroughly exercised and reviewed response and recovery arrangements to manage the impact of any business disruptions.
