In many environments, overland travel presents the single greatest domain of risk to life safety. Managing this risk requires the adoption of a systematic approach that starts with an assessment of threats posed by the road conditions, locally prevalent driving behaviors and nature and tempo of travel undertaken, and then overlays this with the spatial pattern of threats presented by hostile individuals and groups, and hazards arising in the natural environment. This module, based on field-proven approaches, explores how the level of assessed risk influences vehicle selection, driver recruitment, training and management, and the scaling of onboard vehicle inventories and communications equipment, as well as the resourcing put to fleet operations management and vehicle dispatching. The roles and responsibilities of both drivers and passengers are also reviewed, understanding that, how these individuals conduct themselves and their preparedness to respond to breakdowns, road traffic collisions and security incidents is an essential component of an integrated travel risk management approach. Binding the risk assessment and its practical outcomes together, is a detailed look at how risk, the scope and nature of overland travel and the driving environment itself influence the development of an end-to-end travel risk management and trip planning and management process. This works through a series of logical steps, starting with notification of intent to travel, and then detailed trip planning and risk assessment, authorization, dispatching, in-transit management and post-trip actions.
