Duty of care to travellers goes beyond borders
Make sure your far-flung travellers aren’t taking on undue risks your organization could be liable for.
If the domestic slowdown is driving your company to seek more international business opportunities, make sure your far-flung travellers aren’t taking on undue risks your organization could be liable for, says Tom Griffin of International SOS Canada, a global health and safety organization. The company recently released a new white paper on employer Duty of Care, outlining legislation and best practices from around the world on how to manage travel risks – a must-read for travel managers, HR and security staff reviewing travel policy. For guidance, see the company’s website or download a PDF of the full 48-page report, Duty of Care of Employers for Protecting International Assignees, their Dependents and International Business Travelers, made available to Ignite readers by International SOS.
