Safety Investigators Course

This course is designed to give the student an overview of all the different types of accidents that can occur in the Airside Area of an Airport. The course shows the techniques we use to investigate all accidents which range from those of a minor nature up to fatal accidents and Annex 13 Reportable Aircraft Accidents and Serious Incidents. The different levels of accidents are identified together with practical workshops to show how we can make a meaningful investigation which will prevent re-occurrence from an Airport Operators point of view.

This course is a based on the principle of theory into practice. A good mixture of both to give the student a good understanding of the requirements and principals of Accident/Incident Investigation. There is an industry need for us to stop just recording accidents and producing charts. We need to understand WHY the accident happened and then to take appropriate action to stop re-occurrence. The Authorities want to see this approach and are looking for a meaningful investigation. In the world of Human Factors and Accident / Incident Investigation is linked. It is for us to establish that link and no matter how painful or where the fault lies to expose it and make the required changes. This course teaches both theory and practice of how to interview and investigate accidents. The discipline can then be applied to any type of interview or investigation the student may be asked to carry out.

Aviation is one continuous team... let's train that way.
