This research can help you identify more practical and better ways to improve your practices in Duty of Care, developing a Duty of Care culture that is continuously thinking, learning and adapting. Would you like to be involved?

There is a lot of research and information on the theme of duty of care; available under various topics such as health, safety, security, wellbeing, welfare and managing stress, trauma and resilience produced by experts, specialists, NGOs and network organisations.

Christine has produced articles and information on the topic Duty of Care, and together with Roger Darby from Cranfield University, produced an article called The Importance of HR Management in Supporting Staff Working in Hazardous Environments.

The research from this article led us to explore different models and practical tools to assist organisations with their Duty of Care responsibilities. One such model is below, which we wish to develop and take further – with your help!

The cyclical model below indicates the relationship between a number of key factors of HR support and Duty of Care; drawn from the literature in the article supported by the primary data analysis we undertook using real case studies in the humanitarian sector, for consideration by management practitioners to develop for future use:
