Could they be at risk of:
- natural disaster
- military or insurgent action?
As you know, your organisation could face serious consequences if the worst should happen, because a poorly-handled crisis can have far reaching consequences beyond those staff immediately affected.
It could expose your organisation to:
- staff difficulties, including physical and emotional stress and burnout
- significant financial costs
- damaging publicity
- recriminations and lawsuits
- programme closure
Here at Safer Edge, we understand that worthwhile work can take your staff to insecure parts of the world, where some risk is inevitable.
And we’re here to make sure you are prepared for the worst. In just a few days, we can help you to develop a resilient, sustainable and effective crisis management system.
Our five-step process includes:
- Crisis management health check, reviewing your current state of readiness against best practice
- Establishing a crisis management plan with clear procedures and responsibilities
- Training members of the crisis management team
- Running a crisis simulation, to test your organisation’s readiness, and review performance
- Rolling out the plan to your field offices (including international simulation).
Organisations around the world have found that the process of preparing for an emergency with us doesn’t only ease anxiety about the possible effects of a crisis. It also helps teams to work more effectively together day to day, makes the management of programmes more effective – and actually reduces the likelihood of a preventable emergency.
