We are passionate about fieldwork, outdoor activities, expeditions and adventure travel. We believe that the benefits of these activities are huge but also recognise that they come with risks which need to be understood and managed. Working in remote outdoor environments, in and around water, carrying out fieldwork in the deserts, jungles, mountains or in challenging political climates can pose field safety challenges. It is important that people have the confidence and skills to run these ventures safely and successfully.
Over the last ten years, Training Expertise has developed a unique range of innovative fieldwork and travel safety courses addressing dynamic risk assessment, preparing teams to deal with risk and emergency management in remote locations and safe management of off-site and outdoor activities. As well as being open to individuals these field safety training courses are regularly designed and run to suit the needs of Universities, businesses, NGOs, schools and expedition teams.
Our trainers are practical fieldwork safety and expedition experts working from the mountains of the UK to the jungles of Borneo, from the peaks of Canada to the deserts of Oman. This hands-on experience allows us to run tailored, interactive sessions which are engaging, enjoyable and thought provoking. The courses include off-site safety management; RLSS water safety management program and fieldwork safety. We are leaders in field safety courses for major Universities, schools, TV companies, Government organisations, charities and NGOs.
The training is aligned to fieldwork safety guidelines such as the British Standard for overseas expeditions and fieldwork, BS8848 and the UCEA University fieldwork Guidance. We run courses accredited by the RGS with IBG and approved CPD courses for the Institute for Outdoor Learning. We also specialise in designing as well as designing tailor made courses to test and tie in with your own risk management systems.
