CBM offers a wide range of trainings and resources for staff around various aspects of security, and training topics are developed in response to current security concerns. A crisis hotline where staff can report incidents and receive support in several languages and incorporation of disability inclusion into trainings make this a good practice.



CBM International has a dedicated Health, Safety and Security Unit which focuses on training and awareness building for staff. Initiatives include pre-departure travel briefings for business trips, mandatory traveller security training (with a dedicated topic on female security and sexual assault) and written resources available to all staff. A 24/7/365 telephone and email crisis hotline is available for staff to report any incidents and receive support in several languages.

CBM’s security training has responded to increasing numbers of terrorist attacks by including a training unit on surviving a shooting attack, and this incorporates a disability inclusion element. Each regional office and an increasing number of country offices have a dedicated security focal person.
