Crisis Support

NZOIA supports members in a crisis, e.g. a serious harm event or death, even if it appears an accident may have involved an error of judgement. Please contact the Operations or Business Manager for assistance.

 - Personal strategies

We also encourage members to develop strategies for themselves in dealing with crises.

Some questions that may be useful are:

• Who will inform the media, the employer, friends and family, and how?

• What sort of reporting will be necessary and who will do this?

• Is counselling required and who will provide it?

• What strategies will be required to deal with other participants in the group?

• How can the situation be debriefed and who will do this?

 - Media contact

We recommend an "Unable to comment" response from all NZOIA members, at least until you're aware of all the circumstances surrounding an accident.
