2015 has shown us that it is not simply those parts of the world with weak security, governance and civil order where our travellers could be at risk. Major incidents affecting the health, safety and security of our travellers can strike anywhere at any time, without warning. Yet without a robust crisis management plan in place, the impact of such incidents can be exacerbated and if duty of care is not robustly demonstrated by employer or institution, then the repercussions can be colossal, resulting in law suits and loss of reputation. When employees work across borders, duty of care involves risk management beyond the usual health and safety requirements of a familiar environment. As workforces become more mobile, fulfilling duty of care can seem like a daunting task for employers which is made more challenging by the inconsistent standards across the globe. The balance between having reasonable processes in place to protect staff overseas and conducting business in an efficient and profitable manner can sometimes be difficult. Many organisations are still unclear as to the scope of their liability regarding duty of care. Duty of care is not an ethical concern but a legal obligation which is embedded in workers compensation laws in the UK and can extend as far as the dependents of international assignees. By protecting your employees, your most valuable asset, you are protecting your business, financial and reputational risks. By attending this conference, delegates will be able to hear the latest advice on risks posed to workers travelling overseas and assess whether their own in-house travel and risk procedures are up to date. Delegates will be able to ensure they adequately understand the legal implications and liabilities of managing overseas workers and that they are meeting their Duty of Care requirements. The conference will provide an excellent opportunity to network with peers, swap ideas and best practice and meet face to face the technology providers who are offering solutions in this area.
