Safety in the Field (SIF) Workshop: Operating in Complex Security Environments

United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) | Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) | Sep 2011

InterWorks conducted the eCentre’s standard Safety In the Field (SIF) workshop co-sponsored by the UNHCR eCentre and JICA in Hua Hin, Thailand with support from the Royal Thai Army per their longstanding arrangement with the UNHCR eCentre. Participants were from diverse backgrounds, offices, and countries, representing UNHCR, OCHA, JICA, NGO and Government counterparts.

This workshop addressed basic elements of personal security for staff in the field, and highlighted security risk management tools and strategies for maintaining operations in complex security environments. The training included interactive classroom sessions, skills exercises, and the practical application of concepts in the field through realistic simulations.

I have rated this course and trainers very highly as their experience and enthusiasm delivering the course content was great. Participants learnt to work under pressure and as a team. The feedback from the participants in relation to the content of the course was excellent.
