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 this 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.
