How to Handle Catastrophic Accidents in the Workplace

9.6.17

Featured in The Business Journals, Ed Foulke's article, "How to Handle Catastrophic Accidents in the Workplace," provides employers with advice on how to properly handle a workplace accident.

"At a time when fatalities and catastrophic accidents occur in the workplace on a nearly daily basis, employers must deal with at least three very distinct audiences.

Finally, and most importantly, a fatality or catastrophic accident in the workplace causes the need to communicate with grieving survivors, whether family members of the deceased employees, eyewitnesses to the incident, or co-workers who feel a sense of loss."
