What would you do if the unthinkable happened?
No employer sets out to cause injury but with more than 100 people killed and 609,000 more injured at work each year, the need to deal with an accident in the workplace is a reality that unfortunately should not be ignored.
Learning “on the job” when counselling and managing injured and traumatised employees as the Police and HSE press for information, insurers demand answers and the press camp at the gates is simply not an option.
There is a close correlation between how well a business manages the aftermath of an incident and the outcomes of an investigation. HSE statistics tell us that fines are stratospherically increasing as the Courts become increasingly comfortable and confident in wielding their new found sentencing might. As such, emergency preparedness has never been more important.
This course provides companies with the toolkit they will need to appropriately, compassionately and sensibly respond to a major incident.
