Description

Our three day Security Awareness & First Aid training (SAFA) programme is delivered regularly in the UK (close to Gatwick Airport) and Kenya (close to Nairobi).

The course is delivered by a mixed gender team of professional security advisors and medics, using up-to-date theory and best practice principles on risk mitigation, informed by our ongoing risk advisory field work around the world.

Throughout the programme the instructors link three distinct topics:

Human Security

The human factors that affect safety and security. Our team help delegates to understand the ‘drivers’ to interpersonal violence, and their own attitudes and responses to it.

Physical Security

Abduction, blast threats, vehicle check points, weapon effects; the ILS team explore and explain tactics employed by armed actors around the world. Delegates will learn how to reduce their personal and team vulnerabilities to these threats.

First Aid

Basic Life Support for remote locations where access to definitive care is not easily accessible. The reality of delivering this kind of first aid can mean improvising equipment, and making difficult and pressured decisions.

At the end of the training, delegates will be able to:

  • Conduct a context analysis and a personal travel risk assessment
  • Explain their personal responses to risk
  • Identify measures that reduce personal and team vulnerability to a range of threats
  • Describe actions to take in the event of an incident occurring to reduce its impact
  • List key protective equipment that can be used to increase personal safety
  • Demonstrate how to communicate effectively during a critical incident
  • Practice Basic Life Support
