Travel Risk Management Solutions for the Third Sector
“The trustees were impressed with the risk assessment. Thank you for your work on it.”
Recent global events have transformed the security landscape for international aid workers. Knowing what risks someone could potentially face in this new world and empowering them with the tools to respond should an incident occur is critical.
Events like the shopping hotel attacks in Kenya, the abduction of tourists in Uganda or the increasing number of road travel incidents indicate the need for travel risk management to be addressed by every organisation sending people overseas.
Leaders understand they have a duty of care towards their staff and volunteers and ThirdSEC offers a professional yet affordable option to help address the complex issue of modern international travel. Failure to do what is reasonably practicable to manage risk could result in serious unwanted consequences.
Our team are competent security specialists with decades of combined experience working in the third sector. They guide our clients through the process of establishing a travel risk management solution in each organisation. They review current practises, understand the context of each mission, recommend improvements based on a thorough risk assessment (ISO 31000) and develop a bespoke training module.
Our clients include small charities focused on a single area in a single country or an organisation that works in multiple sites across multiple nations. Other clients include churches and church denominations/networks who regularly send teams overseas.
ThirdSEC can also deliver professional pre expedition training courses, hire out or source specialist emergency equipment and offer long-term support so organisations can understand, adapt and respond to an increasingly changing world.
