Good safety and security incident information management (SIIM) practices allow aid agencies to reduce the impact of safety and security incidents on aid operations and staff. It improves the ability of organisations to prevent future incidents from happening.

SIIM is a key building block in meeting duty of care obligations towards staff and supports good decision-making for programmes, safety and security, human resources and budgeting. SIIM can improve access to communities in need and also support advocacy efforts. Good safety and security incident information management finds the right balance between these benefits and the administrative costs of the system.

Insecurity Insight offers a range of materials on SIIM, including Mobile Guides, Handbook with User Guide, Toolkit and Humanitarian Incidents Podcasts. Discover all the materials here!
