A review of your existing policies and procedures is the best place to start to ensure your employees are appropriately protected when travelling on business.
Under current legislation (health and safety regulations), employers are required to comply with their duty of care obligations associated with business travel. In order to minimise the risks and exposure for both the Company and individuals they also need to demonstrate they have taken all practicable steps to ensure their employees’ health, safety and wellbeing needs are met, whether the business travel is in the UK or overseas.
BP Associates provide high quality services to commercial organisations and the business traveller. Our experience allows us to develop travel policies and procedures which are specifically designed to help organisations provide appropriate and effective support and protection to employees if there is an emergency, incident or crisis while they’re travelling on business. It also ensures individuals have the necessary tools and information to maximise their personal safety and security while travelling overseas.
