Corrs knows exactly what needs to be done in a crisis. Just as important, our workplace health and safety team knows what shouldn’t be done.

The Corrs team provides specialist advice to Australia’s key organisations and industries and is often among the first on the scene of a critical incident involving death or serious injury in the workplace.

This vast experience has allowed our team to see the need for the key people involved in a crisis to have the ability to speak in a secure, confidential and immediate way. Not just instructions of “do this, do that,” but two-way communication that provides legal advice quickly and easily regardless of the incidents location. That’s why the team at Corrs has developed the Crisis Covered smartphone app.

How does Crisis Covered work?

Once legal advice has been sought through activation of Crisis Covered, it locks down the phones of key decision makers to direct their attention to the crisis, facilitating a focussed legal response during a time of extreme stress.

Crisis Covered aggregates key information and services into one mobile and one screen, meaning critical details can be accessed from any location at any time. It also enables the exchange of images, documentation and potential evidence in real time.

Is it easy to use?

Yes. The tool is easy to use regardless of skill level. If you can use a mobile you can use Crisis Covered. It is a simple, secure, intuitive solution.

What benefits can clients receive from using Crisis Covered?

Crisis Covered works in real time to assist Corrs clients to:

  • Seek and receive expert legal advice
  • Capture important data and evidence
  • Control important communications following the crisis
  • Provide timely legal briefings to a range of key decision makers and stakeholders within the organisation, regardless of location.
