Webinar - Is your company compliant with Duty of Care?
|End date:||2018-05-15 11:00|
|Organization:||SBTA and Falck Global Assistance|
The number of business travelers representing their companies abroad is over 150 million. Globalization creates new business opportunities. It also poses new health and safety challenges
when natural disasters, traffic incidents, political unrest, terror attacks and epidemics occur. If an employee is injured or threatened while abroad, the employer is responsible and can potentially face crucial consequences, both legally and financially, but also morally in terms of company brand.
DID YOU KNOW?
46% of employees work for firms with no clear travel or security policies in place and 22% have no idea who to alert in the event of an emergency?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Do you think business travel has become more unsafe or has there been a surge in legislation related to duty of care?
How should a company start to look at travel risk management and how should you communicate with travellers in the event of an incident?
During the webinar our specialists will touch some of the questions that you should consider when sending your employees overseas.
WHAT’S IN THE PRESS?
In 2012, aid worker Steve Dennis won a case against the Norwegian Refugee Council, after he was kidnapped on the job. The NRC was found liable for physical and psychological injuries and Steve Dennis was awarded a total compensation of £350,000 for gross negligence.
