Management of an OHS Crisis imposes significant stress on individuals and organisations who may find it difficult to deal with efficiently and effectively.
Crises arise in several areas including:
- Improvement and prohibition notices issued by the statutory authorities
- Private Litigation
- Withdrawal of labour by unions, critical employees leaving the organisation
- Potential loss of a contract due to major breaches of client OHS requirements
- Unsafe products sent to customers
- Community and political outrage – real and imagined
- Fatality and major incident events
- Intense focus by social media and the press
- Unplanned or sudden loss of senior executive OHS staff
- Low morale of employees
- Short term replacement OHS executive role
- Oversee, plan and coordinate the way through and out of the crisis – short, medium and long term action plans
- Employer Advocate and Management Advisor when dealing with third parties and internal company staff.
- Call in Crisis leaders to simulate and train clients in crisis response and management
