Reminder! Workshop on “Coping with terrorism: the role of Human Factors”

16 – 17 June 2015, UIC HQ

UIC is pleased to organise this event on the 16 and morning of 17 June at UIC HQ. The UIC workshop on antiterrorism and human factors takes place in the wake of terrorist attacks that affected France and other countries at the beginning of the year.

More generally, this workshop, organised by both UIC within the framework of its security activity and RZD as chairman of the security working group dedicated to human factors, is one of the requests by UIC members.

This one-and-a-half day workshop will be dedicated to exchanging experiences on antiterrorism, organisational and human factors and crisis management.

Firstly, this day will be an opportunity for members to exchange experiences on antiterrorism.
Otherwise a session will be dedicated to organisational and human factors in the field of antiterrorism; it will also be an opportunity to cover topics such as training for railway staff in connection with police forces.

Finally, awareness and prevention in security crisis management and crisis communication for staff, citizens and media could be addressed accordingly with the expectations of the participants.
