Duty of Care and Travel Risk Management

Duty of care has become an increasingly important consideration for those involved with travel risk management. Personnel on business travel and expat assignments are generally at higher risk of harm than employees working in a single office environment.

As an organization, you have a responsibility to ensure the safety and well-being of these personnel.

Corporate travel, security, HR, risk, and legal professionals are all responsible for duty of care. An enhanced travel risk management program is an essential part of a duty of care assessment.

Assessing Your Operations

You should be proactive in researching duty of care issues based on your operations and geographic interest. Monitoring trends will allow for a clearer understanding of duty of care standards as they apply to your organization, both in terms of legal obligations and industry best practices. This is particularly important for organizations operating in developing markets, where legal protections are uneven at the same time that standards are rapidly evolving.
