Employers have a legal responsibility to take reasonable care for the health and safety of their employees, contractors and sub-contractors wherever they are working.
The current global environment presents countless challenges to those seeking to engage in aid provision, international development and overseas research. The emergence of new conflict dynamics, targeting of those with ‘Western’ affiliations, and an increased frequency of natural disaster events continues to obstruct project work and threaten employee safety.
Knowing your legal obligations regarding the duty of care you owe, as well as being able to systematically reduce the risks faced, is essential for protecting the interests of any institution working in such environments. However, by implementing an enabling risk management system you may also be able to increase your ability to implement projects, your productivity and ultimately, your reputational advantage.

Our aim is to support your institution in addressing safety and security needs to reduce the risks faced and comply with legal requirements. This is achieved through an enhanced Risk Management system, tailored to integrate with your existing ways of working and complimentary to your organisational structure and culture.
In so doing, we will provide a stronger foundation upon which your organisation or institution can better capitalise on opportunities and achieve project success in the complex global environment.
