Safety and Security training

Programme Overview

Safety and Security training is essential in the work of humanitarian organizations Unfortunately, casualties cannot be completely avoided in the humanitarian aid sector. During the amazing work that they do, humanitarians expose themselves to certain risks. This is particularly true when working in conflict-afflicted zones. However, with sufficient risk assessment and preparation, it is often possible to prevent these casualties or at least minimise the impact.

Safety and Security training in the field” is a 4 day programme delivered in two linked phases:

The first phase focuses on prevention and impact mitigation, whilst the second phase, ‘Reacting to Security incidents’, shifts the focus to practical applications in dealing with security incidents.

In addition to the classroom based content, there are two E-learning modules that participants are required to complete prior to the face-to-face training. These modules provide valuable grounding in security matters. The classroom environment provides a unique opportunity for participants to share experiences and exchange ideas as well as form new alliances that they can draw on when travelling.
