Aid Workers’ Safety & Security

Stay Safe! Training, consultancy and advocacy on safety and security for aid workers.

The safety and security of people delivering aid around the world is a responsibility shared by aid organizations, their staff, and the communities where they work. Salanga provides training, consultancy and advocacy enabling seamless integration of security both into aid workers' daily behaviors as well as into humanitarian and development projects.

What we do

Security Management Training

The management of safety and security is complex; no organization should be left to build their security management plan through trial and error.  Salanga provides tools and training for the management of staff safety and security. Each training is adjusted to the specific needs of the organization and includes topics such as risk analysis and security management structures. Salanga can also help organizations identify ways to include the cost of security management training into their project budgets.

Personal Security Training

A strong foundation in safety and security should be a prerequisite for all humanitarian and development personnel. Salanga delivers training that provides the basic security tools and knowledge needed for personnel to stay safe while working on your projects. Salanga provides training for students, aid workers, technical experts and civil servants on personal safety and security. Training can be tailored to the needs of the organization and audience.

HEAT Training

Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) is an intensive practical course with  hands-on activities that allow participants to explore their behavior and learn, apply and experience life saving behaviours through realistic simulations in a high-risk environment. The aim is to improve personal security and self-awareness for NGO workers. Our well-tested learning process builds on 3 phase methodology of (1) learning theory, (2) putting classroom learning into a practice, and (3) testing your newly gained skills in realistic simulations.

Learning Events and Discussions

Salanga organizes discussions and learning sessions,providing a platform for experts in safety and security to share their knowledge. Salanga joins hundreds of organizations every year on World Aid Worker’s day to raise awareness about the importance of safety and security in the workplace.


We advocate that it is the responsibility of organizations to provide training for their staff and ensure they have up-to-date safety and security organizational standards and rules. As individuals, we know it is in our own interest to be familiar with basic safety rules and we promote this behavioural model among our colleagues and partner organizations.
