Fatal Accident – Response Team Leadership
[b]Fatal Accident – Response Team Leadership[/b]
James shares his experience of leading a major incident team, responding to a work-place accident that tragically claimed the lives of four colleagues in 2016.
He provides critical insight, from an organisational perspective, into the complex challenges and often competing stakeholder issues that the audience should consider when developing and reviewing their own critical event/crisis incident response frameworks.
In addition he discusses the mental health impacts he observed, in respect of post traumatic stress disorder [PTSD] and management burn-out of those directly and indirectly involved in this tragic incident.
[b]Fatal Accidents – Organisational & Human Impacts[/b]
James discusses more fully the medium to long-term impact on an organisations ability to recover and continue to trade profitably, given the consequent impact on brand integrity and direct cost, that a fatal accident can have.
In this presentation he explores direct and indirect cost implications, resource and time commitments and the importance of event horizon scanning. He shares his own experience of turning around organisational decline, restoring stakeholder confidence and importantly the physical and emotional impact on his own health and relationships during this difficult period.
A personal journey that includes valuable insight for any business leaders on the reality of a high impact, low frequency crisis incidents.
