ABTA and IGI joined to present a Safety & Security Seminar in Mombasa Kenya in March 2016 with the full support of the Kenyan Tourist Board and several other key tourism stakeholders in the country.
An excellent turnout showed the commitment of the industry to adopt higher standards and encourage more tourists to visit the country since travel restrictions were recently lifted.
The World Youth Day project between Cosmos and the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference is in its final few months of preparation. IGI have been advising on the risk management of the Pilgrimage where 3000 youth members of the Australian Catholic church will be visiting Krakow in Poland in August 2016 for a celebration of youth and a mass by Pope Francis. One of the areas that some of the Pilgrims will visit prior to the event will be religious sites in Israel and Jordan. Ian Greaves, accompanied by Patrick Preiano and Jeff Daniels of Cosmos, carried out audits and training in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem in February 2016 with a team from Amiel, its agents in the area.
February saw IGI deliver its first CIEH Level 3 Award in Fire Safety Risk Assessment and Control. The new qualification is designed for those individuals and companies wishing to carry out competent fire safety risk assessments and also increase their own knowledge on the subject if writing policies or carrying out auditing and training. The course involves theory and practical combined. For further details please contact us.
IGI through its client Cosmos are proud to be associated with the Catholic Church of Australia and the World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow, Poland. We have been asked to provide risk management support and safety advice to the Pilgrimage of up to 3000 young people attending the event in summer 2016. We recently accompanied 40 Pilgrimage coordinators from the CCA around the main sites around Poland and shared ideas and plans for the upcoming event. This was followed by a ‘Trip Down Under’ to meet again the organisers and coordinators on their national WYD meeting.
Well done to the CCR Island Resorts of Veligandu, Meeru, and Kuredu in attaining HACCP accreditation in accordance with the International Codex Alimentarius standards. The resorts were independently audited by Mr Tim Gassick, a consultant EHO from the UK, and achieved excellent results and high commendation from the auditor. CCR have certainly set the highest standards for the Maldives.
We have worked closely with IGI Limited for several years. They have taken time to understand our requirements and we have developed together policies and training that have enhanced our high standards and enthused our colleagues.
