Safety & Security Committee

We can’t prevent the emergency, BUT we can control effective response and the aftercare that victims receive, thus ensuring that, as far as possible, they leave the country knowing they were cared for.

SATSA’s approach to Safety and Security is focused on a three-point plan and is aligned with existing National and Provincial strategies.

TBSCA Safety & Security Consultant

André was invited to be a member of the Safety & Security committee which was set up under instruction of the Minister of Tourism so that private sector specialists may advise and assist in the implement of the 2018 National Tourism Safety Strategy.

Together with colleagues Andre has spearheaded the scaled distribution of the SECURA Traveller Emergency App, the establishment of the SECURA Traveller Operations Centre and the ongoing Traveller Aftercare support service so critical for inbound travellers.

SECURA Traveller Operations Centre (STOC)

With the financial support of the TBSCA, we established a 24/7/365 Operations Desk that coordinates immediate emergency response and aftercare services for Travellers in South Africa.

The aim is to build capacity within STOC and the tourism stakeholders to ensure all traveller related incidents are managed in a way that provides professional response and empathetic aftercare support.

Ranger Protect

Introducing the Ranger Protect project, a transformative initiative driven by André to prioritize the well-being and safety of the courageous men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting Africa's wilderness landscapes.

In a collaborative effort between SATIB Insurance Brokers and the Game Ranger’s Association of Africa, Ranger Protect offers a comprehensive solution to support these unsung heroes in their noble mission. André’s unwavering commitment to this project ensures that game rangers receive the essential protection they deserve.
