Anytime a company is looking into outsourcing a part of their responsibilities, several factors come in to play. Some of the benefits to outsourcing is improving company focus, streamlining and increasing efficiency, as well as improving company focus just name a few. For many Airports around the United States, they are faced with a decision on whether to execute their Wildlife Hazard Management Plan internally or bring in the professionals like Loomacres Wildlife Management.
Here are a few key factors you should consider when deciding to outsource your airports Wildlife Management.
Reducing Operating Costs: Like most companies, airports, municipalities, and general people post Covid-19 pandemic budgets are tight. So, having a dedicated employee to your wildlife management could add either more man hours (or woman hours) to your annual payroll or create an entirely new position added to your payroll.
Expertise: Anytime you outsource anything your goal is to bring in an expert. Companies like Loomacres Inc. have more on staff wildlife biologist than any other firm in the country. Each biologist specializes in different areas that can be applied to your Wildlife Hazard Management Plan. Simply put we do it better than you can.
Mitigate Safety Risk: For containing or managing wildlife in your airport there a lot of hazards not just with wildlife but for your staff as well. Injuries, fatalities, and mistakes happen far too often when dealing with traps, firearms and pyrotechnics. By outsourcing to a private company, you can count on safety being at the top of the list on all projects.
Training Costs: Each year the FAA requires a certain number of training hours and updated procedures when dealing with Wildlife Hazard Management Plans. By outsourcing this you are eliminating the risk of being out of compliance and drastically reducing any cost associated with training your staff. Most trainings are provided by the same company that you would be outsourcing to anyways.
Accountability: Anytime you hire a vendor to complete a project or provide a service, a certain amount of accountability is brought to the table. When dealing with Wildlife Management companies you should be expecting a certain amount of professionalism, reliability, and ethics in order to assure your airport and aircraft safety is up to par! Basically, it is a lot easier to hold a vendor accountable especially one with on staff Biologist than one of your employees that you have invested money, time and effort training to do a task. When hiring an outside firm, you know they wont just walk off a job site creating an open position and a rehiring process.
