Road safety charity Brake is running an essential crisis response training course aimed at fleet management professionals, executive management and HR professionals.

The training will cover practical and procedural issues around a crisis event involving sudden deaths or serious injury, including creating a crisis response team

The one-day training course takes place on Thursday 24 November 2016, in Sheffield, and will cover the procedures organisations should have in place to provide support to employees following road crashes and other sudden, traumatic events.

The event, which is sponsored by international law firm, will be delivered by Kennedys partner Radd Seiger, specialist disaster management trainer Rosie Murray, and Martin ‘Nobby’ Clarke, driver development manager at Balfour Beatty, who will share their knowledge, experience and expertise in 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.

Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “We spend a lot of time working with organisations to help them effectively manage their road risk, to prevent road crashes happening in the first place. However, it’s also incredibly important for employers to be prepared for the worst, and to ensure they have robust policies in place to support their employees, should one of them be involved in a crash.”
