4 HOUR TRAVEL SAFETY BRIEF
Similar in scope to the 2-hour session but with an opportunity to go into more detail.
Delivered at a time and location that’s convenient for you, the 4-hour travel safety brief can be tailored to your team’s requirements with emphasis on medical skills, security, or both. Skill fade is common if you haven’t travelled for a while or are just feeling a bit rusty.
A typical programme comprises some or all of the following subjects -
1 - Introduction – Overview of the risks to travellers and business people, why you are at risk and steps to take to lower your profile and avoid unwanted attention.
2 - Situation Awareness – Personal conflict management, body language
3 - SAFE approach - What you can do in certain circumstances how you can give lifesaving first aid without becoming a casualty yourself.
4 - Pre-trip planning - Research / Documentation / Equipment. Steps you can take to reduce the impact of incidents, such as being robbed, losing your passport and arriving at the Embassy with just your shirt.
5 - Personal Security – Arriving at your destination / transiting to your hotel or guest house / Out on the town. We look at all the possible vulnerable points that thieves and conmen will concentrate on to relieve new arrivals of their belongings.
6 - Basic Life Support - skills that will may keep a casualty alive until help arrives.
7 - Vehicle Security – Controlling your driver, rudimentary to thorough checks if you’re hiring the driver and his vehicle for a run round town or for a three-day trip.
8 - Vehicle check points – A thorn in everyone’s side throughout much of the world, what they are, who mans them and how to successfully negotiate them.
9 - City Orientation – Get and keep your bearings wherever you are.
10 - Working with interpreters and local nationals. A much-overlooked topic but pay attention to it and you can avoid confusion, save time, conduct business more smoothly and improve your safety.
