A good strategy begins with a comprehensive Impact Analysis. KRTS International developed their C-CLEARLY Assessment™ tool to enable an in-depth bespoke analysis of an organisation’s unique areas of risk and to identify the most effective and efficient strategies and tactics to ensure recovery. The assessment is conducted in collaboration with key stakeholders.
A comprehensive report is prepared that sets out the findings and recommendations to ensure the people aspects of Business Continuity, including Health and Safety, are met by the commissioning organisation. Advice will be given where gaps or adjustments to other policies have been identified. A plan with prioritised actions and deliverables will be created.
The Trauma Support Policy will consider both proactive and responsive Standard Operating Procedures. This may include an additional report on the most appropriate control measures for reducing the risks of secondary trauma within at-risk employees. Any new processes will be designed to dovetail with existing procedures and maximise the use of organisational resources.
Dr Liz Royle or Cath Kerr will personally offer a follow up surveillance service to review the implementation of strategies, assessing the impact of any Critical Incidents and how they have been managed. They will evaluate whether the strategy meets the agreed objectives and check that the organisation’s trauma support processes are fit for purpose. Any further recommendations or adjustments will be identified at this juncture.
