Prepare today, safeguard tomorrow with UCLan PROTECT

Public sector agencies and private businesses are benefiting from the services available through UCLan PROTECT, the specialist crisis and emergency management centre which has been established to help organisations improve emergency preparedness and become more resilient.

As a leading provider of higher education courses and consultancy services, UCLan PROTECT employs a holistic approach to crisis and emergency management combining specialist knowledge with academic expertise.

Services include independent reviews, mentoring and expertise in relation to business continuity, cybercrime and counter terrorism.

Courses range from emergency plan preparation, incident and decision logging and responding to emergencies at strategic, tactical and operational levels. Because all organisations have different objectives and resources, the courses can be tailored to meet the specific needs of any business.

UCLan PROTECT’s team of experts has already been working with Tata Steel, the second largest producer of steel in Europe, to support the company in developing capabilities and improving skills in emergency and crisis management.

Scott McKinnon, Head of Health, Safety and Environment at Tata Steel, said: “Since partnering with UCLan, our emergency resilience has improved, we have gained vital knowledge about our own processes and made a number of changes as a result.”

Patrick Cunningham, Principal Consultant at UCLan PROTECT said: “We feel that the link between police, fire and rescue services and industrial concerns should be a lot stronger. By combining academic excellent with real practitioner experience and expertise, we can not only enrich the learning process but ultimately help to make the world a safe place.”
