There are a wide range of events that may cause trauma, some being more prevalent in some sectors, than in others. For instance, there is more chance of staff involvement in, or witness to, physical violence in a pub/club environment, or increasingly in a retail setting, than in an office. Many events that may induce a psychological impression are difficult to foresee, others are predictable, such as for staff involved in a Cardiac Arrest rescue. Surely all must be treated, as needed.
