Hostile Environment Readiness Training (HERT) is a crucial programme designed to equip personnel with the necessary skills and knowledge to navigate challenging and potentially dangerous situations. This type of training falls under the ‘Duty of Care’ of not only companies and organisations in assisting in the prevention of security-related incidents to their staff and personnel.
