Course details Print details

Most incidents are small in nature and may not need a full IMS implemented to manage the incident itself, but in the event of an escalating or large incident, being familiar with a functioning IMS will support the in-field operations expediently. This course will develop your preparedness in dealing with a large-scale incident as well as your tangible skills to manage an incident effectively and efficiently.

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.

What will I learn?

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.
