Drivers are the backbone of the organisation. They are responsible for moving staff under often difficult circumstances. Statistics tell that the majority of safety incidents for humanitarian organisations 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. PMO SRM offers a 2-day contextualised security awareness training for drivers to better protect themselves and other staff during vehicle movement.

  • Travel and road safety:
  • Driver responsibility & the law
