(The Humanitarian Social Network)
Every day, aidworkers go about their work in often complex, challenging and unpredictable environments. The hazards and risks are usually well known, but the policies and procedures designed to protect people are sometimes less clear.
Caring for people at work means many things. It encompasses health and safety, psychosocial care and security management, and extends to the economic wellbeing (pay and benefits). The responsibilities for looking after staff may be shared between different departments and there may begaps, inconsistencies and a lack of minimum standards.
This conference looks at creating a more integrated approach to these issues.
