The article addresses the growing risk of trauma in the workplace. Co-workers who may have to return to work immediately following a disaster will have to come to terms with the injuries and possible death of one or more colleagues, together with possible damage to workplace buildings caused by fire, water, etc. The workplace may have changed dramatically and the effect of this may impact on everyone within the organization. Therefore, it is important to have a clear understanding of the risk of trauma and how your staff could potentially be affected by it.
