Developing Risk Assessment Strategies – 2 Days


Aviation is an incredibly complex business environment. Demands placed on the organization and individuals to deliver are often considerable, and place a burden on key individuals.“The risks and costs in commercial aviation necessitate a rational process for decision-making. On a daily basis, operators and managers make decisions in real-time, weighing the probability and severity of any adverse consequences implied by the risk against the expected gain of taking the risk. This process is known as risk management.” – ICAO
