Solving the Duty of Care Puzzle

You’ve got employees traveling all over the world. And you’re wondering if there’s more you could be doing to ensure they – and you – are prepared for the unexpected. Not to mention concerns about what kind of responsibility you have as an employer or university if something does go wrong. Now what?

International travel has increased in range and frequency, exposing both you and your employees and students to greater risks and threats that can range from hostile political environments, natural disasters, disease and travel accidents to common travel problems. As if considering these risks isn’t overwhelming enough, understanding and establishing Duty of Care guidelines is a daunting task involving many considerations and responsibilities. The International SOS white paper  empowers you with the “what” “why” and “how” you need to know to create an effective program within your organization.

Building an integrated risk management program doesn’t have to be difficult. You may already have the building blocks you need for an effective program within various departments of your organization. Various decision makers from senior management, security and risk, HR,  medical, travel, insurance, and legal  all share responsibility for an organization’s Duty of Care. It’s just a matter of putting them together in an integrated way that allows you to be both proactive and responsive.

Check out the white paper for a comprehensive guide to the Duty of Care landscape and practical tips to help you manage the risks of your global workforce and ultimately risks for your business, finances, and reputation.

  1. Hello,

    It’s encouraging to see a blog dedicated to this subject.

    On a related note, sometimes Duty of Care issues are raised closer to home. Last week, the widespread riots across London had HR departments sending email advisories to their employees. HR recommended that employees not too leave the office too late in order so they could avoid potential riot-related incidents, which happened mainly after dark. I think this is a good, recent example of how companies take their Duty of Care obligations seriously to protect and reduce risk to their employees.

    Cheers,

    Rebecca
