Travel Risk Management Duty of Care Checklist
By David Suomi
Part I: Evaluating Your Responsibility- Protecting Your Employees & Organization with Proper Planning
An estimated 1.3 million business trips occur each day just within the United States*. Now, add to this the fact that International travel is growing rapidly each year as organizations realize the importance of having an on-the-ground presence. However, with that presence also comes risk. If your organization has employees who travel internationally, their safety must be a top priority.
I've been working in the nonprofit industry for over 25 years and have witnessed first-hand the growth of international travel. It's an exciting time for businesses and industry to build cross-cultural programs, relationships and close deals.
Has your organization discussed Duty of Care and risk associated with employees' international travel? If not, now is the time. TDS has a comprehensive checklist that organizations can tailor to meet their needs. We encourage clients to use this checklist to begin the dialogue with their legal and risk assessment departments and to create a policy that protects both traveler and organization.
