Maintaining or Working Towards Achieving an ISO 31030:2021

In today's interconnected world, organisations frequently look to enrol employees for hostile environment training because of the risks associated with travelling to hostile areas. Travel is an essential activity for many organisations but can expose businesses and their travellers to significant risks.

Travellers can be faced with unfamiliar situations and environments that pose significant risks. These can range from major health incidents to terrorism and conflict. At HET we aim to manage and mitigate these risks through our training courses.

Understanding ISO 31030:2021

The ISO 31030:2021 accreditation seeks to help organisations take a methodical approach to travel risk management by doing three things: identify risks; evaluate the probability of an event tied to an identified risk occurring; and determine the severity of the problems caused by the event occurring.

How Can Hostile Environment Training Help?

Hostile environment training aims to equip individuals with the technical expertise necessary to maintain or gain ISO 31030:2021 compliance. Our courses ensure you gain knowledge about various travel risk management strategies and make informed decisions to enhance travel safety and security.

At HET, we provide a structured approach to the development, implementation and evaluation of:

  • Programme development.
  • Threat and hazard identification.
  • Opportunities and strengths.
  • Risk assessment.
  • Prevention and mitigation strategies.

Benefits of Being ISO 31030:2021 Compliant

Some of the aims of the standard is to promote a culture where travel-related risk is taken seriously, resourced adequately and managed effectively. This ensures that the benefits to the organisation and relevant stakeholders are recognised and realised. Such benefits include:

  • Protecting personnel, data and intellectual property.
  • Reducing legal and financial exposure.
  • Enabling business in high-risk locations.
  • Improving worker confidence in health, safety and security in regard to travel.
  • Demonstrating the organisation’s ability to control its travel-related risks effectively and efficiently.
