Many organisations undertake remote area operations, whether that be a school project in the UK, a University sending researchers overseas to undertake work in the field, through to exploration geologists operating in desert, jungle, mountainous and arctic environments, aid organisations, TV companies covering projects from news through to reality Survival and endurance programmes -  and more.

Each of these organisations has a number of factors in common, from planning and delivery considerations, some services arranged whilst deployed, in country, often including accommodation, transport, drivers, medical incidents, incident response and more.  The 2021 C:ORE Risk Conference focuses on a number of these areas of risk. At the conference, there will be an opportunity for all of those delegates attending the conference, who have a focus on remote area operations to network in a facilitated session and join a supportive network to assist each other going forwards, with those focus groups feeding back in to the 2022 C:ORE Risk Conference to present on issues that have arisen during the previous year and safety themes, as well as an opportunity to submit proposals for 2022 C:ORE Risk Conference speakers and subjects that you would like to see covered.

The C:ORE Risk Conference is highly relevant to those undertaking remote area operations - whether that be in the more remote areas of the UK,  and more likely overseas, being deployed to undertake remote area work or responsible for planning and/or operational delivery and safety of the project.

The C:ORE Risk team and speakers have years of experience training and supporting organisations undertaking these activities, including involvement in writing relevant safety standards dealing, delivering recognised training courses, with the aftermath of incidents, both in the field, to supporting organisations through the inquests and court cases that ensued.
