Do You Know Where Your Staff Are in an Emergency?
30 April 2016
It is important for every organisation sending employees away on business to have a travel risk management policy (TRM). In the light of recent terrorist events and further threats, it has become even more essential for business travel to be fully risk assessed and managed.
Any travel carries an element of risk, therefore TRM is essential to mitigate risks and fulfil duty of care to employees – it comprises a range of activities and processes to ensure the business travel arrangements and procedures run as smoothly as possible, with plans in place for emergencies.
Through the relationship with the Institute of Travel and Meetings (ITM), CIPS members have access to the ITM Phoenix Crisis Management hub: a one-stop-shop for resources and information to help business travel professionals better manage the impact of travel disruption and crisis, as well as to understand travel risks and fulfil ongoing duty of care obligations.
