Critical Incident Stress Debriefing

The Human Side of Emergency Preparedness

Unhappy manTo prevent a workplace disaster, your company may utilize a security system, install fire alarms, provide safety training, or offer education on anger management.  But if a disaster does occur, is your company prepared to deal with the emotional injury that employees suffer?
