Training & Surveys / Safeguarding Survey
SafeSkys understands the complexities. Tuition in airport bird control recognises additional problems, is tailored to meet specific needs and includes firearms instruction. We also employ experts in deer control, the legal use of poisons, pest control and habitat management.
SafeSkys has been carrying out training in wildlife hazard management since 1993. Within this time we have provided training for every UK RAF Airfield and over 20 UK Civilian Airports.
SafeSkys has recently undertaken bird control and wildlife management training for airports in the Maldives and Bulgaria. We also recently trained staff at Beijing International Airport, China.
On-site or off-site training
- Bird control experts will train your staff at your airport.
- Staff can attend one of the regular courses at our Wildlife and Habitat Management Training College, in High Wycombe. Courses, which are run for airport bird control operators and supervisors, are residential and of two days' duration for those with airport experience. There are discounts for six students or more. An additional day should be added if airfield driving and radio experience training is required. We also offer a one day course for ATCOs in Wildlife and Habitat Management and run regional training courses throughout the UK.
SafeSkys has carried out Safeguarding surveys for international airports world-wide such as:
Sofia International Airport Bulgaria
Norman Manley International Airport Jamaica
Wick Airport Scotland
Aberdeen International Airport Scotland
Biggin Hill Airport England
Ramon Airport Israel
In addition to practical bird control services, SafeSkys' bird control experts can help airports to meet mandatory safety standards in the most effective and cost-effective way. CAA/ICAO Safeguarding regulations include conducting safeguarding surveys of your airport environment.
Our experts can assist with ICAO 13km safety surveys, WHMP's (Wildlife Hazard Management Plans) and prepare the reports necessary to comply with regulations. We will advise on preventative measures to control future bird strikes and if required, put these proposals in place. Costs for safeguarding surveys, tri-annual site visits and annual inspections compare very favourably with those of our competitors. Our expertise is unchallenged. So are our prices.
