Rail and Road
How the transport industry responds to crises, from accidents involving loss of life, reputational damage, data breaches, to natural disasters, terrorism, and pandemics, is continuously evolving.
Managing the aftermath of a disaster involving victims, families and employees is an overwhelming task in an environment where standards for a fast, effective, transparent and compassionate response are higher today than it has ever been.
Challenges during an incident:
- Real-time video & eyewitness accounts spreading on social media
- Answering thousands of phone, social media and email enquiries from customers, staff, regulators, and the media
- Involvement of multiple parties, including Government agencies
- Lack of resources, especially at the scene
- Managing expectations of distressed families
- Dealing with survivors and/or disrupted customers
- Maintaining normal operations
- Personal stress for senior managers and employees, especially at the front line
These challenges can overwhelm your resources, day-to-day operations and the people in your organisation.
GoCrisis provides crisis preparedness and response services to some of the world’s largest rail and bus companies. We support our rail and road clients through a close partnership that involves regular meetings, annual training and a strong global response capability.
