// Duty Of Care: Fieldwork Risk: Safety Training Assessment & Management Programme



Risk: S.T.A.M.P ™️







Have you ticked all your risk management boxes ?


At Remote Area Risk International, we have decades of experience in risk management related to field safety & are uniquely positioned to provide client organisations with support in this field, whether it be a University sending students overseas, a mineral exploration company or NGO. Training is delivered on site at the National Outdoor Centre, as part of our exclusive partnership with Plas y Brenin in the Risk Management and Medical fields.

“The most well informed, skilfully delivered course I’ve done in 20 years. Excellent course that will allow me to do my job better. Excellent, in depth, experience based delivery.”

"Excellent course delivered by a Master of the subject!"

"Having several years’ experience of expedition management and delivery that have been learned ‘on the job’ in international youth development, this course consolidated that practical learning, provided me with a clear framework and really enhanced my understanding of the policies and legal contexts in which it is imperative to operate."

"I already hold NEBOSH NGC, but this course went over and above my expectations..."  

  • Faculty members were involved in writing both BS:8848 (the standard safety in overseas expeditions, fieldwork and adventure travel) and the international standard for travel risk management - ISO: 31030

  • We have trained fieldwork teams for organisations working across the globe, delivering training in the UK, North America, Asia and more.

  • Every year, we train organisations deploying to operate on every continent, in every environment, whether they be geoscience field staff, to researchers in Antarctica, the Amazon, Greenland or elsewhere, University staff or students or NGO staff.

  • We deliver training at client venues or at our training venue - the National Outdoor Centre, Snowdonia.

  • We have years of experience forensically investigating in the aftermath of field based incidents and feeding back lessons learned to close the loop.


If you are deploying staff, you need to have organisational systems in place to support those deployments. We regularly provide tailored training to organisations at senior operational level and assist in putting Travel Risk Management and Fieldwork safety systems in place.

Once systems are in place and management understand the risk and their responsibilities, we can provide training for those staff or students deploying. Programmes can last from a day to 14 days. An example 7 day programme includes:

  • 2 days : Our own unique delivery of the Royal Geographical Society Off Site Safety Management Course including travel safety, risk assessment, transport, accommodation safety and incident response.

  • 3 hour (evening) mental health awareness.

  • 1 day Risk Assessment bolt on (delegates need to subsequently undertake a risk assessment and report to management, within 10 days and submit it separately to our expert team, who then provide feedback, before delegates complete the final version for submission).

  • 1 hour (evening) communications (including sat phones, GPS trackers, personal locator beacons).

  • 2 days field work and travel condition specific first aid including incident response

  • 1.5 hour (evening) incident response and triage desk top exercise.

  • 1 day fieldskills (selecting campsites, setting up tents, safe use of cookers, food preparation, safe use of bladed instruments, rudimentary vehicle safety assessment).


Environment specific risk management and medical modules are available as well as:

  •  Field Survival training,,

  • Rescue 3 accredited 2 day Water Safety for Expedition Leaders courses for those working in or near water or undertaking river crossings (run by our partners - the National Outdoor Centre, Plas y Brenin).
