Read Time:41 Second

This guidance document recommends a step by step approach for organisations whose employees are at risk of vicarious trauma while working from home during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

This is based on the following 5 Rs:

  1. Recognise
  2. Review
  3. Respond 
  4. Refresh 
  5. Respect

Using the 5 Rs will help employers to fulfil their duty of care, enabling them to recognise, review and respond to risks for individual employees, make changes or improvements, and ensure that respect underpins their response.

Exposure to distressing material – such as traumatising conversations, images and written or auditory testimony – occurs in the work of many people. However the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in this type of work being undertaken in the home.
