Enabling the personnel of a leading NGO to operate safely and effectively overseas
We provide a comprehensive one day Safety Awareness programme to prepare the personnel of a development and relief agency for future long term development projects or emergency relief situations.
A large global reach
The UK branch of this organisation is part of a network of 120 offices around the world. Their UK regional office runs projects in Asia, Africa and South America, and is currently focussed on work in Rwanda, Mongolia, Nepal, Myanmar, Mali, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Papua New Guinea, Thailand, Haiti, Somalia, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Chad and Peru.
Thoroughly preparing delegates
The organisation’s infrastructure on the ground includes local field offices, own vehicles, and comprehensive safety and security protocols. In order to ensure that delegates feel thoroughly prepared to operate across such a diverse range of countries, we worked to develop a course that could provide their staff with a key skillset for managing their own security and safety whilst on task.
Modules covered include:
- Cultural awareness - relevant to the client’s fields of operation
- Security and situation awareness
- Conflict resolution
- Travel and hotel security
- Kidnap and ransom (K&R)
- Personal protective equipment (PPE), clothing and use of grab bags
- Use of guides and foreign drivers
- Mine awareness
- Weapon awareness
- Stress and hygiene
Investing in employees
Our client was keen that this course was demonstrate a real investment in their personnel’s learning and development. Throughout the process of designing and developing this course, we worked in partnership with our client to ensure that their long term strategic objectives were met and that their staff left thoroughly prepared for any challenging situations they may face.
“I would not hesitate to recommend G4S Specialist Training to others in the development field as I believe it is an important investment in our employees and will go a long way to supporting our international strategic objectives.”
Since 2010, we have delivered safety and security training to the personnel of a well known British broadcaster who are due to travel to conflicted environments.
For over five years, G4S Specialist Training has provided Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT), driving and medical training courses to the counter terrorism unit of a large police force.
