1CRISIS MANAGEMENT IN MANUFACTURING ORGANISATIONSImportance of Crisis Management in Manufacturing Organisations:A crisis is basically a test for any company management team which starts at the top andis basically used to serve the interests of the management in keeping the organisation viable.Communicating to the managers at the time of any event that might have any impact on thebusiness and its customer base is crucial (Mahmood et al. 2016). The concept of crisismanagement is a sort of collaboration between different managers until the situation is solved toa certain degree (Biloslavo, Bagnoli and Rusjan Figelj, 2013). A single crisis can have anenormous impact on the organisation (Mandorf and Gregu 2014). It can pose a threat to theemployees or in certain cases even lead to closure (Beqiri 2014). Therefore it is necessary for themanufacturing company managers to adopt crisis management and crisis communicationtechniques (Loorbach and Wijsman 2013).There are a number of threats faced by the manufacturing organisations which arecompletely new and unique (Martinez et al 2010). Violent incidents, the breaches of data, naturaldisasters and fire constitute the risks to the companies (Beninger 2017). Based on the nature of thebusiness it might also affect the chance of chemical leaks or explosions, malfunctions ofequipment, vehicle accidents and more (Kwak, Seo and Mason 2017). It is crucial to createemergency plans for every type of crisis which the business might encounter (Alaarj et al. 2016).Then there should be the distribution of the plans to the stakeholders (Loorbach and Wijsman2013). In case an organisation is prepared for any sort of threat encountered the company will bebetter equipped to handle emergencies and also well equipped to meet relevant governmentregulations (Shaw et al 2007).
2CRISIS MANAGEMENT IN MANUFACTURING ORGANISATIONSThere need to be crisis management plans application which help employees getimmediate access to the relevant resources for emergency (Szwejczewski, Sweeney and Cousens2016). These help the stakeholder’s report the incident reports through the app (Lu and Taylor2017). It is obvious that a single manufacturing plan cannot work for any manufacturer. It islikely that different manufacturing organisations will face different threats and therefore thereneed to be multiple versions of emergency plans available (Dey and Cheff, 2013).The workforce constitutes another innovative characteristic of the manufacturing industry(Szwejczewski, Sweeney and Cousens 2016). Unlike other businesses the emergency planningneeds to be ensured to remain prepared under all circumstances (Elias and Davis 2017). Thecompanies need to be prepared for any sort of emergency (Tao et al. 2017). As a result thecomplete supply chain will be safe which comprises the assets, the people and also the bottomline are bound to be safe (Vamsi Krishna Jasti and Kodali 2014). The organisations need to beprepared for all possible scenarios (Timothy Coombs and Jean Holladay 2014).
