Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs)

Field staff and volunteers are no longer protected by reputation alone. We can help you meet your Duty of Care responsibilities and support your aid workers, as they face increased risks when deployed on assignment.

PROTECT. DELIVER. SUCCEED. 

The world of humanitarian and development aid is changing. Field staff and volunteers are no longer protected by reputation alone. From terrorism and targeted violence to the rise of pandemics, aid workers face increased risks every time they are deployed on assignment. International SOS supports your  employees when at home abroad and helps you meet your Duty of Care responsibilities.

BECAUSE SICK DAYS ARE NOT AN OPTION | BECAUSE HELP IS NOT ALWAYS THERE | BECAUSE THE WORLD IS CHANGING

International SOS supports NGOs to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of staff and volunteers who are at home and abroad, whether it’s for business, emergency response or delivering long term projects. We also help you meet your Duty of Care responsibilities, protecting your staff, contractors and volunteers at home and on assignment. Natural disasters are occurring more frequently and each time the aid community responds in strength. International SOS is there to protect aid workers and volunteers on assignment.

BENEFITS TO YOU AND YOUR ORGANISATION

  • Cyclone IDAI

    Educate your Travellers Before they Depart

    Many NGO’s take extra precautions when deploying staff into high-risk countries or locations because the risks are obvious. The gaps start to appear when precautions are overlooked for travel that is perceived to be for business, of short duration or to low-risk countries.

    Even in seemingly benign countries and locations the security situation can change suddenly and without warning.

    Pre-departure preparation is important for everyone, regardless of their destination or trip duration. When considering Duty of Care obligations all staff are considered equal and should receive location briefings, health checks and screenings, and training on your organisation’s emergency response plans.

  • Remote Saudi

    Assess your Risk Exposure

    Assess your risk of exposure in any location and recommend ways to mitigate the them. Provide your travellers with around-the clock access to local know-how.

  • Vietnam remote community

    Stay Connected with your Travellers

    Stay connected with your travellers and keep track of them. Our Workforce Resilience service supports your people every step of the way. We help them prepare for layered threat environments, monitor their location, warn them of emerging risks and provide professional health and security expertise.

MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION WITH THE RIGHT INFORMATION

Having access to the latest location-specific medical and security alerts is critical to making informed decisions about your operations.

Government advisories and mainstream news are often insufficient sources of information when assessing risks to your operations and making stay or go decisions. Our alerts, advisories, and Assistance Centre experts can help you evaluate any particular situation in relation to your people and programs, thereby assisting you in balancing the need for safety versus the cost of potential evacuation and/or programme closure.
