No one who experiences these powerful DVDs will be unaffected by the lessons they convey.


What is the BBC Disaster Series?

The BBC disaster series is designed to help organisations make that vital move from the 'belief" that things can't go wrong, to the 'knowledge' that they can.  The 10 part series utilises case studies of major disasters from around the world from various industries, such as oil and gas, transport, aviation, aeronautics and space, chemical manufacturing and hospitality.

The workshops for each DVD allows for a highly interactive learning environment in which participants undertake detailed Pre-event and Post-event analysis of each disaster.  This means they not only listen, but apply the lessons learned, in order to formulate solutions specific to their own workplace: they not only learn what went wrong, but how it could have been avoided.
