Network Meeting – Managing a Crisis (Emcorp)

Event Details

PRESENTATOR - Richard Stevens, Director Risk & Client services, Emcorp Group

 Topic:        Managing a crisis, the links from a workplace incident to a crisis and how best to respond

All workplace systems, processes and procedures are underpinned by the human experience. This can have a dramatic outcome on both your and your fellow staff’s ‘inward and downward’ versus ‘upward and outward’ management of such events.

The human element, linked to operating timeframes, must always be considered in any crisis.

From a small workplace incident, through to a potential emergency and actual crisis event, consideration must always be applied to the behaviour and actions of both staff, company management, and their shared inputs over a timed event.

In this presentation, Richard will provide insights into how it is important to implement time management to events, and apply them to outcomes and reporting. Tied into recognising behaviours and engagement of staff at all levels, based on real world events, this will assist in reinforcing successful safety-based frameworks to manage any workplace event, to minimise the human impacts and reduce your exposure to risk. .
