The United Nations deploys its staff across the world, often expecting them to work in difficult and challenging environments. As part of the UN’s due diligence to provide its staff with a safe working environment it often provides training, which can include medical training and safety training services. Both of these categories can be found on the United Nations General Marketplace 86101709 Safety Training Services being an area in which Lazarus Training can be of help.
As a supplier on the UNGM we provide a range of first aid training and safety training services such as hostile environments training. You can find more information about our individual courses on the linked pages, but all training has common features: designed to be specific for each individual client; based on the science of how we learn and remember; using current advice and evidence.
Understanding that UN staff are not aiming to become medical or safety experts, our training is designed to give a functional level of knowledge that can be recalled, and then applied in stressful situations.
We can tailor the training to reflect both high risk and medium risk environments. Our training team has recent experience on the ground in Afghanistan, Pakistan, West Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Turkey/Syria border, East Africa and Thailand. We don’t just teach this stuff, or rely upon “old” stories from our army days, we continue to deploy, with staff in Ethiopia in October, Malaysia in November, Nigeria in December and Lebanon in January 2018.
At Lazarus Training we pride ourselves on listening to the client and working with them to cover their specific needs, so all group course bookings are treated as bespoke events. Course content is varied to meet the needs of each client group but would typically cover:
Planning before the trip
Selection of kit and equipment [for example video below]
Dealing with people, conflict and aggression
Weapon and explosive awareness [please note this isn’t training you to use weapons]
Vehicle and driver safety
Hostile environments first aid
All our hostile environments first aid training is delivered by medical professionals with experience of providing medical care in a hostile and/or remote environment. Depending on the duration of the training course we can offer a basic overview of hostile environments first aid training or one of our specific travel medicine courses embedded within the package.
We have a specific page with some more information for safety training of staff of UNODC field offices.
Additional units can be added from our list of prepared hostile environments topics such as navigation and language skills.
