Newrisk Limited can assist clients by preparing their employees to respond to major incidents and disruption events and assisting employees to adjust to a post incident environment.
Employee preparedness exercises may take the form of employee shelter and evacuation exercises, self-protection lectures and workshops as well as post incident advice. Recent work on employee preparedness has included post Fukushima advisory work to enable employees to self-protect against radiation and other perceived risks.
Since 9/11, Newrisk Limited's principal adviser, Dr Leivesley, has made extensive comments in the media about the preparedness of employees in the workforce for terror threats including vehicle borne explosive devices, suicide bombing and CBRN*, as well as from natural disasters (such as pandemics). Northern Ireland terrorist threats and international terrorism as well as home grown and self-radicalised terrorism have also been the subject of media commentary.
Dr Leivesley has provided media commentary on the risk of recruitment of personnel from the workforce, particularly in relation to critical infrastructure such as rail and aviation. She has also exercised and prepared training manuals for hazardous industry organisations, including dangerous goods carriage by rail, power stations, control room personnel in rail and power industries, evacuation from tall buildings, ship loading of fuel and the security of laboratory personnel.
