Experience has shown that the use of a structured Incident Management System (IMS) is a critical success factor in establishing command and control in response to a major oil spill. IMS includes a modular organization that has pre-identified roles, responsibilities, reporting relationships and authorities necessary to manage an incident. IMS also includes a planning process necessary to ensure a direct link between the incident management objectives and response actions being taken in the field.
This course is ideal for those required to be a part of the incident management team (IMT) during an incident, highlighting the fundamental aspects of incident management and the roles and responsibilities covered within.
This course is suitable for all personnel that would serve in an incident command post/centre:
Effective incident management requires the ability to establish command and control – to move the management of the response from an initial reactive mode, to one where the scope of the incident is understood, appropriate response actions are being taken, and the outcome of the incident is being driven by a clear set of objectives to protect people and the environment.
This course will give you the knowledge and understanding in the following areas:
