The BBC Disaster series examines the world’s most dramatic catastrophes using brilliant BBC footage, recreations and interviews with key decision makers. This acclaimed docudrama approach speaks to the viewers in a way nothing else can. Now available in a totally new format with expert training support material developed by FutureMedia, this series awakens the need for safety consciousness at every level of an organisation.

 No one who experiences these powerful training programs will be unaffected by the essential lessons they convey.

 What makes up the BBC Disaster Series?

 The BBC Disaster Series is designed to help organizations make that vital move from the ‘belief’ that things can’t go wrong, to the ‘knowledge’ that they can. The 10-part series utilizes 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. Each workshop provides participants an unforgettable learning experience by giving them a feel of the real-world scale of loss - both human and monetary, and the avoidable mistakes which lead to it. It thus helps them understand the importance of a planned, systematically-applied approach to health and safety needs.

 What is the format of the programs?

 The workshops follow an innovative case study approach and provide a highly interactive learning environment in which participants undertake detailed Pre-event, Event and Post- event (P-E-P) analyses of each disaster. This means that they not onlylisten, but also apply the lessons learnt in order to formulate solutions specific to their own workplace; they not only learn aboutwhat went wrong, but also how it could have been avoided.

Why is the case study approach so successful?

In the words of psychologist Lauren Slater: “We most fully integrate that which is told as a tale.” Thus, the viewing of these real-life case studies is particularly well-placed to keep staff focussed on the potential for human and engineering failures in their own workplace.

What are the possible training applications?
