Travel Risk Management

Speaker: Frank Slater, CGI

Every organization has a legal responsibility to provide a reasonable standard of care and achieve due diligence when sending employees abroad or even employing foreign workers; organizations that don’t are risking their employees, reputation, financial liability, and potential criminal charges under legislation. In an emergency the organization has to have prepared their travelers, their home-based staff, and their response protocols.

This presentation will cover the four pillars of a robust travel risk management program (Plan, Prepare, Prevent, Respond) as used by U.S. Federal authorities and how to integrate with your business continuity plans and health and safety policies.
