Corporate Survival Safety Training

Many companies around the world have employees who face incredible travel risks, some on a daily basis. Whether your risks include becoming disoriented or stranded while traveling remote, in or away from a vehicle, learning to prepare for and then to survive what nature throws your way is critical to a successful outcome. Our company has specialized in this type of safety preparation and training for over the last three decades and therefore can offer you training anywhere in the world you desire. Just let us know the details, and we can even suggest “centralized sites” to send your employees to, so that everyone shares the travel distance.

Our safety training adapts to the environments you desire, from deserts and extremely hot weather with reptile and other nature concerns to remote mountain ranges with snow and plummeting temps. Are your employees in these locations during the year? If you want things done the right way the first time, then our team is the one for yours. Our goal is to ensure that the delivered product meets and/or exceeds your company’s liability concerns. When it comes to the hands-on, the real meat of any program, we pride ourselves in offering training in environments and conditions that actually mimic your employee’s work place. To train in anything less, in our opinion is probably a waste of time and money. Sometimes that means it’s a longer haul to get the proper training site, but it’s worth it’s weight in gold when you look at the end result: properly acquired knowledge and skill sets for the required tasks, and getting things done in a safer and more timely manner.

Give us a call at (503) 668-8264 or email to: to discuss your training needs and concerns, and we will help you build and provide your crews with the best training available, 2nd to none. We expect and deliver results to everyone who trains with us.

Survival topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Coping with weather and terrain extremes, from no snow or shallow to very deep and wind-loaded
  • How not to get stranded, but what to do if it happens to you (pre-trip planning is key)
  • Setting priorities and goals and taking advantage of your situation
  • How to use flexibility, creativity and ingenuity to succeed in tough situations
  • Do I stay put or hike out, and what goes into making this potentially life-saving decision
  • Sheltering in/away from your vehicle: you either have temporary shelter, or must find or build it
  • Proper clothing, equipment, and survival packs for vehicles and foot travel
  • Energy needs and food requirements for varying settings
  • Navigating out of a tough situation, should the need arise
  • Map/Compass and GPS use
  • Stars and Sun – using them to navigate if you have to
  • Shelters: locations, types, securing/building
  • Hot, cold and altitude related injuries – you pick (choose from hypothermia, hyperthermia, frostbite, chilblain, snow blindness, acute mountain sickness, etc)
  • Route selection in remote environments, and the wisest direction to travel when required
  • Water procurement and disinfection for all terrain environs
  • Signaling for rescue how-to’s
  • Avalanche concerns and how to deal with them before committing your life
  • How to incorporate your mode of transport into your survival plans (ATV, UTV, Truck, Snowcat, Snowmobile, etc)
  • Medical know-how for remote setting injuries: bleeds, breaks, burns, trauma, hot, cold injuries. Assessments, stabilization and how-to’s.

Did we leave anything out? Then let us know and we can make that another element in the training. All we need is time. The more you give us with your employees, the better equipped they will be to face “expected” mishaps. There is no substitute for great quality, hands-on instruction and training. We would welcome the opportunity to work with your crew.

Again, call us at (503) 668-8264 or email to: Due to our busy schedule throughout the year, if you get voicemail when you call, rest assured we will call you as soon as we get in. The best way to reach us is to do both, call and email. We look forward to talking with you.
