About the Workshop
Incident report writing is a critical skill to have as an airport operations officer, a security officer, a police officer or anyone handling a crisis or emergency at the airport. Incident reports form the basis for a narrative of what occurred during a particular event. Many of these reports, such as aircraft accident or incident reports, and wildlife strike database reports, must be formally filed per the aviation industry requirements.
Along with your incident reports, your incident scene investigation and interview notes and logbook entries become documents that can be subpoenaed in court. In addition, you may asked to give testimony soon after the event, or possibly years later. The only frame of reference you have to prepare will be what you put into your report.
At the end of this training you will be able to:
- Understand FAA, NTSB, and ICAO regulations pertaining to accidents
- Demonstrate the proper methods of writing an incident report
- Illustrate basic note taking skills
- Apply the principles of effective report writing
- Practice basic interviewing skills
- Explain the legal ramifications of report writing
- Produce a report using proper grammar, spelling and formatting
- Understand the requirements of other agencies during an incident, related to incident management, scene security and preservation of evidence,
- Be able to better assist response agencies and investigators
Whether this is new training or a refresher, the ability to write clear, concise and accurate incident reports is critical to your job and to the airport.
