Looking after yourself

Reporting road traffic incidents can be distressing, especially if you have a personal experience, are present at a traumatic scene or have been exposed to multiple incidents over time.

Additionally, media personnel are often early on scene of a road traffic incident and may even constitute first responders in some instances.

  • It is important to safeguard your wellbeing and that of your colleagues.
  • Alert your manager if you feel covering a story may negatively affect your wellbeing.
  • Keep an eye on your colleagues after they have been exposed to road trauma.
  • Road Trauma Support WA is available to you for general information or guidance, to help support yourself and others.
