HLCM: MSCIS – Management of Stress and Critical Incidents Stress Policy 10.08.2016

The primary goal of the United Nations Security Management System (UNSMS) is to enable the conduct of United Nations (UN) activities while ensuring the safety, security and well-being of personnel. The conditions under which UNSMS personnel operate in the field have changed drastically over the years, particularly in light of the UN’s shift to a “stay and deliver” approach to operating in high-risk environments. This has substantially increased the number of individuals exposed to stress and critical incident stress. While many individuals who experience stress or critical incident stress are able to resume their daily activities with minimal or no disruption, some may encounter difficulty resuming such activities due to psychological, somatic or social reactions linked to such exposure.

The Organizational Resilience Management System (ORMS) cannot be considered reliable unless it has been exercised and subject to constant improvement, and tested to ensure emergency management procedures are consistent with business priorities and policy. To this end, staff implementing the ORMS must also be trained and able to work as a team under crisis conditions. The Organization must also demonstrate due diligence toward the management of identified risks. These objectives are achieved through the implementation of a formal Maintenance, Exercise and Review (ME&R) programme, which will be embedded in the Organization’s work processes.
