Objective of the training
The goal of this training is to increase your personal safety during travel.
Learning objectives are:
Duration of the training: 2 days, including overnight stay
Content of the training:
Risk analysis and travel preparation: You learn to make a risk analysis of the travel destination. What is your ideal travel preparation? How do you align your behaviour with the local customs and situation?
Context analysis of your work area: Here we will focus on the local context of your area of work in relation to your activities. How are they influenced by ethnic relations? What is the political situation and how does it relate to your company? What image do people have of Western expatriates?
Dealing with aggression and crime: You learn to deal with different forms of aggression and crime. Where are your boundaries and how can you make these clear? You learn to turn risky situations into less risky ones, and how to deescalate. We will discuss common difficult situations, such as a pushy taxi driver or an aggressive beggar. But we will also train you in how to act during an armed robbery or when encountering an unexpected checkpoint.
Dealing with medical emergencies: What to do when you need to apply urgent medical care? For example after a car accident or injuries caused by violence? You learn to stabilise injuries according to a standard medical protocol.
