CES Hire Toolbox Talk: Counter Terrorism
Keep calm and carry on
This may seem like a flippant comment, given that we see this this phrase littered over greetings cards, posters and fridge magnets. Ultimately this phrase encapsulates British spirit and the spirit that we must demonstrate in the face of terrorism. As terrorism seeks to interrupt the flow of everyday life and uproot our British values, it is so important that we remain unflinching in our principles, ultimately keeping calm and carrying on. This week’s Toolbox Talk came about after the updated FORS (Fleet Operation Recognition Scheme) accreditation stated that businesses must have a Counter-Terrorism policy, risk assessment and method statement. Given this subjects prevalence as a news topic, you would think it would be easy to find support or examples of other counter-terrorism policies to help small businesses. However other than crazily long government policies (I mean, I’m not sure I have time to read a wordy 100-page document!), there are no examples of policies or recommendations for businesses. So, here I am writing this week’s blog that I hope you’ll find useful, if you yourself are in that similar position grappling for the right information with a somewhat delicate subject though a delicate subject we should be talking about to openly to show that keep calm and carry on attitude.
