Hong Kong, just like other parts of the world, is faced with the pandemic threat. While the HKSAR Government has promulgated Preparedness Plan for Influenza Pandemic, individual corporations should take their own proactive actions for business continuity planning, including the appointment of a workplace pandemic coordinator or team.

As part of our communication network for pandemic influenza preparedness on campus, Head of Department should appoint a staff member to take up the role of pandemic coordinator and notify Health, Safety and Environment Office (HSEO) duly.
