Staff safety and security
There is increasing attention being given to an organization's legal and moral duty of care. In aid work, the safety and security of employees and those working on behalf of an organization often acts as a primary constraint on operations, meaning its skillful management is essential for effective access. Security management involves Context Analysis and Risk Assessment followed by the establishment of security procedures, contingency plans and strategies. Humanitarians are not armed -- their security depends on prevention, deterrence and acceptance. In addition to security, ensuring safety must cover common activities such as construction, transport and health/hygiene precautions.
