Safeguarding Duty of Care

Security Awareness Training for Drivers

Drivers are the backbone of the organization. They are responsible for moving staff under often difficult circumstances. Statistics tell us that the majority of safety incidents for humanitarian organizations are during vehicle travel. It takes one person who is not trained for a minor safety
incident to turn into a serious or crisis-level situation, and therefore it is important that drivers receive training too. At PMO SRM, we offer a 2-day contextualized security awareness training for drivers to better protect them and other staff during vehicle movement.
