I only did a bit of sec work, last time in 05 in Iraq when rates were falling fast & it was shit. Death rates were approx 800 pers a year back then if i remember right, but part of the time i was there was during one of the Mahdi army ding dongs. In some cases some companies weren't even providing insurance cover for blokes. It was a case of provide your own. Bigger outfits obviously bit better.As they always have done and will continue to do. Have you read the book Blackwater? What they got away with is goppin! Im not 100% but I'm pretty sure I read in a UK PSD book that there is some loophole in law that means PSD companies do not have to report the injuries and or deaths of their foreign based employees through the normal channels hence why we rarely hear of injured or killed PSD operators which apparently happens with worrying regularity.

Only notification that i was aware of for CAS was NOK & UK H&SE - which was a moot point being outside UK. We had a Polish bloke KIA while i was there & that was NOK only & that was mainly off the back of the blokes on the ground & our ops room back in the GZ staffed by ex UK & Fr mob. There was nothing communicated to the polish authorities as far as i know.
