What managers and editors need to know about legal responsibilities when supervising trauma exposed staff

Date: Tuesday, 30 August 2016

Do your staff cover car crashes, cyclones, terrorist attacks, sit for long hours listening to evidence in courts, or report on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse? Do they sit for long periods in editing suites viewing raw footage of death, violence or destruction, or are they exposed to graphic user-generated content online? All of these events have the potential to induce significant traumatic stress reactions.

If you supervise staff covering these sorts of events, you have legal and moral responsibilities to limit the potential for psychological injury to your staff.

Holding Redlich partner Michael Selinger, expert lawyer in occupational health and injury management, will speak about the legal responsibilities of dealing with trauma-exposed staff. Journalist Bruce Shapiro, Executive Director of the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma USA, and social and political commentator for ABC's Late Night Live will join Michael, as well as Dr. Cait McMahon OAM, trauma psychologist and Managing Director of the Dart Centre Asia Pacific.

What HR specialists need to know about legal issues, trauma exposure and news media professionals

Date: Wednesday, 31 August

Are you a HR specialist in a news organisation where staff cover car crashes, cyclones, terrorist attacks, sit for long hours listening to evidence in courts, or report on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse? Do they sit for long periods in editing suites viewing raw footage of death, violence or destruction, or are they exposed to graphic user-generated content online? All of these events have the potential to induce significant traumatic stress reactions.

If you oversee the occupational health and safety needs of staff covering these sorts of events you have legal and moral responsibilities to limit the potential for psychological injury to these staff.

Holding Redlich partner Bree Knoester, expert lawyer in occupational health and injury management, will speak about the legal responsibilities of dealing with trauma-exposed staff. Journalist Bruce Shapiro, Executive Director of the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma USA, and social and political commentator on ABC's Late Night Live will join Bree, as well as Dr. Cait McMahon OAM, trauma psychologist and Managing Director of the Dart Centre Asia Pacific.
