Travel Safety Conference
Protecting Travelling Workers and Expats Abroad
Duty of care, as it relates to travel safety and risk mitigation is now a widely used expression, embedded in the literature of a burgeoning travel security industry which has arisen from a dramatic shift in the corporate travel risk landscape. With global threat levels involving terrorism, extreme weather, civil wars and other geopolitical factors remaining high, your employees’ awareness and perception of risk has been heightened, as has their understanding of the safe work environment their employers are legally required to provide. Case law from around the world illustrates how employees are effectively demonstrating in court the travel safety negligence of their employers when they sue them following an incident.
When employees work across borders, duty of care involves risk management beyond the usual health and safety requirements of a familiar environment. As workforces become globally mobile, fulfilling duty of care can seem like a daunting task for employers which is made more challenging by the inconsistent levels of adoption around the globe.
How an organisation has prepared for and responded to an incident overseas affecting one or several of their employees, can ultimately mean the difference between life and death, not to mention the fallout from lawsuits, reputational loss and in some jurisdictions, criminal charges and prison sentences for directors.
By attending this conference, delegates will be able to hear some of the leading initiatives from corporates and NGOs on how they mitigate risks to their employees and then assess whether their own in-house travel and risk procedures are fit for purpuse and resonating with their workforce. Delegates will be able to ensure they adequately understand the legal implications and liabilities of managing overseas workers and that they are meeting their Duty of Care requirements. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to network with peers, hear about some of the leading initiatives from companies who are doing it well, swap ideas and best practice and meet face to face the providers who are offering solutions in this area.
