In IATA’s Safety Risk Management (SRM) with Simulation course, learn why it is important to conduct a safety risk assessment. Three days of instruction in the classroom are followed by 2 days of exercises using IATA's Safety simulation tool. Your challenge is to use the information, data, and performance indicators within the simulation tool to take the necessary actions based on your team's evaluation, while the Safety simulation tool provides a realistic and risk-free environment to carry out your scenarios. Review your safety risk management process according to the ICAO Safety Performance requirements. Learn how to improve operational safety by correctly identifying hazards, providing effective controls to mitigate safety risks, and reducing equipment loss and damage. Make decisions and recommendations based on analyzing different safety risk scenarios, gain experience in a competitive and challenging environment, and use critical thinking to stimulate discussion and develop key skills and competencies needed to build a positive safety culture.
