Course Overview

Disaster can strike your organisation at any time. You face many threats every day, including aviation incidents, natural disasters, technology, process, infrastructure failures, industrial actions and so on.

If you don’t prepare for events like these, the impact on your organisation exponentially increases. We see examples of unprepared organisations regularly on the news – the significant adverse financial, operational, reputational and legal consequences they suffer.   The ICAO Safety Management Manual indicates that aviation/airport operators must consider a wide range of emergency scenarios, including emergency responses to accidents/incidents, but also business continuity, security, and/or quality-related emergency situations.

Just having a plan is not enough, however. The plan needs to be well practised and tested, which is why exercises are so valuable.  Exercising your plan is crucial to confirming your plans are effective, to build the competency and confidence of staff to respond, and to confirm all information is up-to-date.  Conducting exercises also builds relationships with stakeholders and increases their confidence in your organisation.
