Human Resources and Training

At Humanitarian Access, we know how important it is to prepare staff so that they are able to safely fulfil the mandates of the organisations they work for. In relation with security risk management, it is also essential to communicate the circumstances where the work is going to be done so that they can give their informed consent to the job offer they receive.

Labour and labour risk laws, as well as specific regulations for aid workers, stress the importance of training and informing field teams about various issues such as: the methodologies for managing risks, the definition and assignment of responsibilities, what risks they will face, what they will be able to do in order to fulfil organisational mandates in a safe way and how they will need to react in emergency situations in order to reach more beneficiaries.

With specialised staff in security risk management in the humanitarian and development aid sector, Humanitarian Access has developed a line of work that enables organisations to  fulfil their duty of care obligations.
