ENSURE ACCESS TO MEDICAL SERVICES WHERE LOCAL HEALTHCARE GAPS EXIST
“Healthcare services vary widely geographically, even within close proximity. Organizations need to not only assess their local healthcare provider capabilities, but if they do not offer adequate services, companies need to provide access to services themselves.”

ASSESS AND MANAGE SITE HEALTH RISKS, AND ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH
LOCAL HEALTH REGULATIONS
“It is part of an organization’s duty of care for management to have and demonstrate plans to identify and mitigate against known foreseeable risks and threats to personnel. The obligation of an organization is to protect and support its personnel and identify and limit the incidents it may face in performing its work duties. Duty of care in some jurisdictions is a legal tenant, in others it is a guiding operational principle. Duty of care may be considered the minimal starting point on an organization’s journey to develop a global culture of health.”

PREVENT INTERNATIONAL ASSIGNMENT FAILURES
“International assignment management is one of the hardest areas for HR professionals to master—and one of the most costly. The cost of a three-year international assignment can easily exceed $3 million. Yet many organizations fail to get it right. Despite their significant investments in international assignments, companies still report a 42 percent failure rate in these assignments.”

COMPANY – DUTY OF CARE FOR TRAVELERS
“The requirements of duty of care are clear. Employers must make sure their staff are safe and looked after, when they are traveling for business. Companies have moral and legal obligations to their employees, contractors, volunteers, spouses and family members while they engage in travel for work. Employers are legally bound to reduce the risk of injury to staff, or exposures leading to health problems.”

“If your employees travel on behalf of your business – whether in the U.S. or abroad – you are legally responsible for their health and safety. In fact, Duty of Care legislation has become increasingly important in the corporate travel world. Companies that fail to safeguard their employees not only risk the health and safety of their people, but also can face legal, financial and reputational consequences.”

OCCUPATIONAL MEDICAL ADVISOR – RISK MANAGEMENT
“Occupational physicians are able to help an employer significantly reduce the risks and thus assist with optimizing productivity whilst reducing costs related to health. How can they do this?”

TRAVEL RISK MANAGEMENT
“Every time employees travel on behalf of their companies, they and their employers face the potential that something will go awry in a way that can cause harm to the employee or the company.”
