Hostile Environment Awareness Training


The Safer Access LTD. Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) safety and security training is essential for humanitarian aid workers, human rights defenders, freelance journalists and others working in violent environments or remote areas. Unlike many courses of this nature, our flagship training has been designed from the ground up.


Training & Risk Management

“We have hired Safer Access for several risk management and security tasks over the past few years. Their contribution has been very valuable. Their team provided expert counsel as we developed our protocols and systems for ensuring the security and safety of our staff who work in some of the world's most remote and austere environments. They have provided training for our global crisis team; contributed to our protocols and conducted training for partner staff.  What we deeply appreciate about working with Safer Access is its people. Their team members possess a wealth of knowledge in security management, coupled with an understanding of the aid and development industry and insightful perspective on global risk issues - and an ability to take that knowledge and turn it into practical systems with immediate applicability.” - Scott Ruddick, Senior Director, Global Security MBA, CSyP, CSMP - MEDA
