Risk Lifesigns is part of the Lifesigns Group of companies and has been operating for over 18 years. We provide tailor-made modular courses, consultancy and equipment for client companies and organisations. Clients to whom we have provided training include leading Media companies from the UK and overseas (e.g. BBC, ITN, National Geographic, Channel 4), Governments, NATO Military units, Mineral Exploration companies, Oil companies, Expedition companies, charities, NGO's and private individuals. We regularly deliver courses around the globe.

In order to be ‘security aware’ you must understand the seeds of conflict, how they grow, how they may affect you, and how to respond to threats to your personal safety. If you need to live and work in unfamiliar or unstable environments, security awareness is a vital attribute. By attending a Risk Lifesigns training course the individual’s awareness is heightened and so allows them to make informed assessments of the potential dangers faced and providing them with a mental "toolbox" of knowledge, skills (and therefore, options), thus minimising risk.

Clients can select the course modules that are best suited to their own activities from our menu of modules. These modules make up a 1-5 day training programme to be held either at the client’s location (if applicable), overseas facility, or at one of our training centres in the UK. We consult fully with our clients to ensure that the course is in line with (and complements) the client’s security policy.


A mixture of former military personnel, doctors and security consultants teach Lifesigns courses. All our staff have real and continuing practical experience of planning and managing high-risk environment operations.
