Training for the ‘What if’

Think back to the miraculous landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River, New York. Flight Captain Chesley Sullenburger was climbing to cruising altitude when the plane struck a flock of Canadian Gees disabling both engines. Due to thorough training and fast thinking the plane was skillfully ditched onto the Hudson River where all passengers and crew evacuated the aircraft. There were no fatalities. Do you think Chesley started his work day planning to ditch his aircraft? Absolutely not, however every week he would train on a flight simulator for the ‘what if’ (worst case scenario). This was evident in the almost flawless ditching of the aircraft with no fatalities. If you do not train for the ‘What if’ scenarios of your workplace, how will you respond in an emergency situation?
