Humanitarian staff is exposed to high security risks while working in conflict settings or disasters. Organisations are responsible to implement strategies to minimise those risks. An appropriate safety and security management in NGOs is key when it comes to the duty of care for their employees.
We would like to invite you to the two-day training “Development of an organisation-specific security concept” on 21-22 May 2019 in Berlin, Seminarraum Bülowbogen, Bülowstraße 64. The training will be conducted in English and is relevant for staff of humanitarian organisations who are in charge of staff in international programmes.
The two-day course gives insights in the various steps of security management. The participants become aware of factors that shape their working context and get to know organisational security risks. They learn to identify strategies to reduce those risks and how to prepare for and react to incidents. After the workshop, the trainer will be available for telephone coaching with the participants.
Han Pelster from the Netherlands-based Centre for Safety and Development (CSD) will facilitate the training. He has been working as a professional crisis manager for the Red Cross and is currently security advisor for CSD. Han supports NGOs and companies in their preparations within crisis-, disaster- and security management.
