RAIDS™

RAIDS™ is a brief, dynamic psychological risk-assessment for organisations whose people are at high-risk for posttraumatic stress. It is designed to meet the legal requirement to identify and evaluate hazards in the workplace[1] and with three key advantages:

RAIDS Psychology
  • Allows all workers to meet their Duty of Care for mental health
  • Exemplifies parity between mental health and physical health
  • Can be learned in hours and confidently applied thereafter

RAIDS is attuned to a person’s reaction to an event, rather than the event itself. In other words, there is no traumatic incident, only a traumatic reaction.

Teaching RAIDS to those involved in high-risk work provides an operationally efficient system of assessing individual well-being following any critical incident.

Crucial to acceptability is our peer-led approach which allows key people within an organisation to assess, intervene and monitor their colleagues, straight after their 1-day RAIDS training.

This provides a credible, robust and cost-efficient means for meeting Duty of Care, keeping people supported and for those stood-down, returning to duty as early as possible.

RAIDS is easily applied in after brief and during/after protracted emergencies, and can be integrated into emergency command systems from Bronze through to Gold.

Disasters such as earthquakes, large-scale terrorism and warfare that demand international assistance can incorporate RAIDS into its planning, policy and deployment on-the-ground, to ensure immediate and ongoing evaluation of risk.

Compatibility across sectors is assured following the principle of ‘joint understanding of risk’ inherent in the ‘Joint Emergency Services Interoperability Programme’ (JESIP).

The RAIDS system can extend beyond the formal command or management structures into the looser trauma-relevant contexts in the non-profit and charity sectors dealing with crime, justice and health. If you would like to discuss what RAIDS™ can do for your organisation, please contact us here to see how we can meet your needs with a bespoke solution.

  • Theoretically-based in psychological research
  • Measurable and auditable against clinical criteria
  • Cost-efficient upon implementation
  • Cost-efficient in operation
  • Compatible with Gold, Silver and Bronze command systems
