  • Organisational culture
  • Ensuring employee compliance
  • Understanding where your company is most exposed
  • Immunisations and anti-malarials -how to ensure your staff get them
  • Cyber security and devices

“Organisations need to go beyond basic understanding of the legal and moral implications and liabilities of Duty of Care towards implementing best practice strategies across an enterprise in order to ensure the safety of travellers and expatriates. Understanding your risk exposure, collaborating with stakeholders across the organisation to develop and implement a risk management program, preparing personnel for travel and expatriate assignments, and leveraging today’s technology innovations to monitor and track threats and aid in response, are a few key practices that can support Duty of Care compliance. Duty of Care conference provides a well needed venue where cross-industry organisations can share in best practice approaches”, comments John Rose.
