What would you do if someone walks/runs into an establishment such as a restaurant or airport and shouts Allah Aqaba, or a vehicle drives into a barricade or through a location and it is assessed that an explosion is imminent. It is important to know the difference between cover and concealment. To obtain cover from an imminent explosion search for solid cement or brick walls/pillars or other significant solid structures. Travel Security Get as low as possible and preferably lying down with your feet aimed at the site of the imminent explosion, feet and legs close together and your arms and hands protecting your head and face. If no significant cover is available get as low as possible – use the drop between the sidewalk and the road, behind vehicles or anything between you and the potential blast. Anytime you have to increase distance from you and the explosion, utilize it and move fast but stay low – crawling if necessary.

Ways to keep Employees Safe While Travelling

Back in 2012 when we designed our first travel security course our target market was Gap Year Travelers, primarily young students heading away for prolonged durations. It soon transpired through a broader client reach-out that there was a significant demand for travel security training for a range of other groups. We were being approached by Business Leaders, HR managers, NGOs, and Fortune 500 Chief Security Officers. The market had realized one core truth about Travel Risk Management that individual travelers need the tools and training to help make informed decisions and manage their own risk. We set about developing our training based around the premise that ‘Identifying threats early to avoid the danger is absolutely key.

The word ‘Explore’ initially has connotations with adventure travel, or expeditions in remote regions. To us it means Exploring Business, Exploring new markets, or exploring opportunities. Whether a Business traveler, an energy sector worker, a student on gap-year, or a charity worker; to Explore Secure means carrying out your job, work, or passion securely and then returning home safe and sound. Our mission at ExploreSecure® is to help make that happen. We are dedicated to the safety and security of all travellers.

Whatever you and your team are exploring, the Female Travel Safety training from the ExploreSecure® team provides groups and organizations an effective and user-friendly system of delivering the skills and knowledge of how to mitigate and manage risk.

Travel Security Training

How Can I Stay Safe While Traveling Alone? - Travel Security News

Traveling solo as a female is both courageous and [...]

Traveling solo as a female is both courageous and inspirational, unfortunately, like most adventures in life, it comes with certain risks. This should not deter the devoted enthusiast or curious beginner; it just means being aware of the threats and knowing ways to avoid or reduce them. One of the key things I learned during my time in the military was ‘knowledge is power’.

As a female traveller you are more likely than a male counterpart to be targeted for either criminal intent or sexual attack. Preparation and working to avoid the threats to minimize danger is key as part of a pro-active strategy.

How do you become less of a target? Travel light and only pack essential valuables. Think about the country you intend to visit, is it conservative? Wear appropriate clothing and always try to blend into the local environment. Be sensible about the times you walk alone, look confident and pay attention to your surroundings.

Consider your location, memorise different routes/access points to and from your hotel. This gives you options if you think you are being followed. Never take the quiet shorter route, always stick to the main busier streets even if this means adding an extra 15 minutes to your walk. The most important aspect of female travel safety is situational awareness working in conjunction with local knowledge and research

Situational awareness is being aware of your surroundings and understanding potential threats that may compromise your physical security and safety. The statement below sourced from this article is from a traveller that fell victim to opportunistic crime and highlights a lack of situational awareness:

“Iceland is ranked as ‘the safest country in the world’ by the Global Peace Index…Because Iceland feels so safe, my mindset was very laidback and I got lazy with taking notice of my surroundings”

Never become complacent and always be aware of your surroundings. When a country is considered ‘safe’ this does not mean the local opportunist won’t try their luck. In this incident, the individual made herself an easy target by dropping her guard. She had her phone and camera stolen, thankfully she was not on her own, if she had been, losing her phone would be losing her lifeline. Be vigilant at all times and start thinking about what target you present to potential hostiles.

If you want to know more about personal safety when traveling, the travel safety e-learning courses are designed by security professionals with extensive experience in Counter-Terrorism and personal safety. Our team stems from specialist backgrounds including the UK Government and Special-Forces and our coveted system focuses on pro-active avoidance measures.

Our courses include the following modules:

No one should leave home without knowing exactly what they are getting into. Research the country/city you intend to visit, gain as much information as possible about their laws, culture and the local environment.

When searching for accommodation, ensure you identify the tourist areas using Google or other sources, tourist locations tend to have a higher police presence, less reported crime and, often, easier access to safer transportation.

As a female traveller, research whether the location has a history of incidents targeting women, or anything that could negatively impact them. For example, if traveling to India, research would indicate that there have been multiple incidents of female travellers being harassed or assaulted. Some great resources for information are travel guides e.g. lonely planet or travel forums (this article has some suggestions)
