When the Shit hits the fan: how to negotiate your way through a major incident

Mr Todd Samorowski1

You never wake up in the morning thinking an incident is going to occur today… It is thrust upon you when your attention is elsewhere doing our daily tasks. What I’ve learnt since is that there are steps which can help you get through an incident. Negotiating our way through a major incident is not easy and takes a toll on everyone involved, I wish I knew what to do before having to deal with it first hand.

In this workshop we’ll look at ways we can be ready for something we never want to happen. We will share what we did and what we have done since to make things better/ safer and start opening the communication channels about sharing learnings from incident and removing the stigma and shame felt when it does happen.
