Brake offers critical response training for employers

By / 5 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

The one-day training course, sponsored by international law firm Kennedys, takes place on Wednesday 2 March 2016, in central London.

The training will cover the procedures organisations should have in place to provide support to employees following road crashes and other sudden, traumatic events. Kennedys partner Radd Seiger and specialist disaster management trainer Rosie Murray will deliver the course on Brake’s behalf, covering the practical and procedural issues that follow a crisis event involving sudden deaths or serious injury and the emotional needs of all those affected and how to support them.

Brake stresses that knowing how to react and to project manage the many issues that arise when the worst happens is essential planning for organisations, especially those employing at-work drivers who are at risk on the road.

The training will cover:

  • practical and procedural issues around a crisis event involving sudden deaths or serious injury, including creating a crisis response team
  • possible impacts on your organisation, including legal, financial, regulatory and reputational and brand issues, as well as the emotional impact
  • an introduction to the emotional needs of all those affected by the event and how to manage them
  • the roles and responsibilities of professionals who work with bereaved and injured people
  • what you can do to support affected personnel, and the limitations of your support
  • communicating to other members of staff
  • creating a crisis response team

Brake Professional members can book their place at the seminar for £40 + VAT, or £120 + VAT for non-members.
