Objective of the study was to theoretically substantiate the program-methodical support of psychophysical training in the educational environment: "preschool - school – university" as the basis of the integrated human safety and security.
Results and conclusions. The integrated human safety and security is based on psychophysical training, which determines the formation of man’s mental and physical qualities contributing to the integrated solution of various motor and psychological tasks in the living environment. The study identified the following components in the structure of psychophysical training: socio-economic, educational, extreme, ecological, and volunteering activities.
Successful formation of the integrated human safety and security model necessitates the development of a phased psychophysical training system, starting from a preschool educational institution – Stage 1, school – Stage 2, and university – Stage 3. Preschool education lays down the basis of psychophysical readiness of children, schooling provides their in-depth training, and university improves the psychophysical fitness of young people by reference to the specific features of their future professions.

Keywords: integrated human safety and security, vital activities, psychophysical training, preschool, school, university, educational environment, children and youth.
