Understanding Operational Risks and Terrorism

The operational risks faced by organisations in the transport and logistics industry are varied and come from different sources.

Many have experienced both opportunist and well-organised criminal activity, and some have even been exposed to terrorist threats. This FORS accredited course gives drivers a good understanding of the risks and threats, and more importantly how to respond to them appropriately without being exposed to further risk. The course is especially relevant where high value goods are being moved around the UK and Europe.

This is a 3 ½ hour module and can be combined with another module to create a 7-hour training day.
