Mainstreaming the Organisational Management of Safety and Security

This report offers a comparative overview of recent aid agency attempts to strengthen the management of safety and security. It does more than take stock. Through presenting ideas, approaches and experiences of a range of agencies, asking critical questions and exploring and developing the arguments, it also intends to be of practical use to organisational managers. it also offers not only a management review, but also provides tools and arguments for managers to review rapidly where their organisation is, to orient improvements and to identify objectives. This report is first intended for senior management in aid organisations, as it discusses overall organisational responsibilities, practices, development and change. In part 1, it presents an overview of the key managerial issues that need to be addressed, while in part 2 is the main report, which examines and develops the arguments for and against certain practices. It concludes with the suggestion that organisational improvements can usefully be directed and driven by a management plan.
