Travel Risk Management Keeping business travelers safe and secure
Travel is a risky business. Whenever employees set foot outside their regular workplace, their exposure to security, safety or medical problems increases. There are many reasons why, including:
Business travelers usually stand out from the local population as different (and probably richer), making them a target for criminals and terrorists.
They may be visiting unfamiliar places.
They are often tired and/or jetlagged.
They face more health risks outside their home environment.
Flying and rail travel are relatively safe, but car travel (an element of most business trips) is not, especially if the traveler is doing the driving.
