Specialised Training for Damage Assessment & Salvage Team

  • Disasters are often unforeseeable and unpredictable; at the same time, the damage that they bring could be disruptive to daily operations or could incur heavy losses to the business. To minimise the disruption that disasters might present to the business, there is a need to have an effective process for damage assessment and salvage. The damage assessment team (DAT) would conduct a preliminary but fairly accurate onsite assessment of the damage of loss suffered in the event of a disaster before formal claims or disaster declarations are filed. The salvage team would then determine if the items and property can be salvaged and also determine on how soon the site can be returned to normal.

  • At the end of this course, you will be able to :

    • Understand their roles and responsibilities as part of the Damage Assessment and Salvage teams
    • Describe and explain the impact of a disaster and in turn, set priorities and make recommendations on responding to the disaster and the initial steps for recovery
    • Develop the Damage Assessment and Salvage teams’ checklist during peace time
    • Overview of BCM framework, team structures and roles & responsibilities

    • Review the factors involved to ensure safety for all salvage personnel involved and assess on the feasibility of salvage, peacetime duties and contacting vendors
    • To develop customised damage assessment / salvage procedure checklists based on different situations/needs/requirements/extent of damage as part of the learning outcome
  • Ideally suited to approved DAT members, Salvage Team members, BCM Team members and professionals interested in handling the damage assessment or salvage for the company during times of disasters or crisis.
