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.
