Employees and managers rarely give much thought to psychological assistance when they do not need for it. The day the necessity arises, suddenly everything must happen with great urgency, and they are faced with the question of who to contact, as well as how to contact them. For this reason, it is a good idea to prepare for such events, while things are running smoothly. If a crisis arises, everyone will then know what to do - just as they would during a fire drill.
A solid contingency plan with clear procedures can be crucial when it comes to preventing unforeseen events from causing lasting damage. If everybody is kept informed and instructed on what to do, the contingency plan can be a deciding factor in the emergency phase. It can also contribute to providing peace of mind to those involved, making them feel better equipped to cope with the negative effects of the incident.
