The current Public Health situation presents us with extremely difficult operational problems. As a result, and in line with government advice in relation to the Covid-19 Virus we have, sadly, had to postpone or cancel several of our events. However, some events will now take place on line using the appropriate technology for group discussions. We continue to assess the situation and will continue to heed the best scientific and governmental advice and aim to return to physically attended (possibly with some social distancing guidelines) events later in the year. We hope to include
- AMHSA Autumn Conference
- Site Meetings (adhering appropriate guidelines)
We hope that we will be able to return to a more normalised Calendar of Events as soon as possible, when we shall be able to meet in a physical venue. Until then we will be working hard to ensure that we continue to deliver an appropriate and meaningful content of events.
More details will follow in due course. Please keep a watchful eye on our website for more information.
Coping With Covid19 – How The World Was Changed by Coronavirus
A Power Hour Round Table Event – T.B.C.
In March 2020, following the news that a new serious threat had been emerging in the far east since the new year, successive governments around Europe made unprecedented and difficult decisions to close down their economies and their borders, preventing the free movement of non essential goods and people and locking down their populations in an effort to control the spread of the unknown deadly disease.
The impact as we know proved devastating to all aspects of life, not just for individual nations, but for the whole of the planet, as many more nations followed suit and restricted every element of life in an effort to protect the most vulnerable in society.
Economies, health, livelihoods and all aspects of all normality have been touched by this pandemic. But, the Automated Material Handling Systems industry has, like many other key sectors and its workforce, who were able to continue to play their part during the lockdown, played some part in ensuring that we have been able to help and support major important supply chains and help the authorities and powers to visualise and direct strategies to help sustain us and return us all to some new normality.
Come and meet some of the AMHSA Members, for an hour, and hear how their crisis management and tactical planning techniques helped to enable suppliers to continue to function safely in the sometimes restrictive environments with their workplaces and what considerations are being made to futureproof their installations and customers’ capex investments in the future.
Further details will follow.
As things begin to return to some normality and our future becomes clearer, safer and more normal we will begin to organise some physical meeting. These will begin with a new feature and we hope to be visiting the demonstration suites of our members who have introduced centres on their premises in order to demonstrate their products and services.
