All businesses have a legal Duty of Care to manage their staff safety.
Duty of Care is both a legal and moral responsibility. But where do you start to keep international business travellers safe and to keep your business continuity going, without it becoming cumbersome and expensive?
To grow a global business, we need to seek out new and exciting markets. But in uncertain economic and political times, we are forced, as businesses, to take ever greater risks, and increase your international business travel. Mis-management or failure to manage staff safety, can damage a business, both reputationally and financially.
As a business leader you can not identify every single risk in every context you send staff to, but your staff can and should. But by having well-thought out and tested staff safety management systems, which identifying the most likely risks that will have the biggest impact on your staff, you can expand into new and exciting markets.
