Just saying …

This politeness runs across cultures

So, given this context, my two bits worth about what looks to be another “Emergency Risk Management 101” failure.

Specifically in the current debacle surrounding Australian citizens and their movement from India. There seems to have been a failure to have adequately applied the risk assessment criteria which has been “around the traps” for over forty years – and was promulgated by the Australian government in their 2004 guidelines (see below).

Reference – Emergency Risk Managament Guide (Emergency Management Australia, 2004 (p41 of the hard copy, or p51 of the soft copy)
In this instance, the failure to have adequately premised backlash is quite extraordinary.

In many other instances during the pandemic, there have been failures to adequately apply a range of necessary criteria … but that’s a story for another another day.

PS and by the way – soon, there will be a free app for that
(quality, criteria based decisions)
