High Risk Business Travel – everything you need to know.

by Traveleads | April 17, 2019 | Latest News On The Ground

The safety of our clients and their people has always been of paramount importance to Traveleads. However, as the world we live in becomes increasingly volatile it is no longer enough to just take out a good insurance policy and hope for the best.
An increasing number of companies are finding essential travel is required to unstable regions, which is why Traveleads has teamed up with MASC Executive to ensure every consideration is given to the safety of our travellers visiting high-risk areas.

MASC Executive operates in complex, high threat regions and emerging markets providing risk mitigation services wherever they are required. They provide professional risk, crisis and travel management solutions to international corporations, governments and expeditionary industries worldwide. Their consultants are time-served with distinction in their given fields of military and law enforcement.
Their consultants can be placed anywhere around the globe – for specific events, circumstances and duration’s, covering a wide range of services which will preserve safety, security and client reputation. They will provide the solution to your requirements by using analysis and intelligence gained through their many consultants.

It will come as no surprise to learn that international travel poses an ever increasing number of risks to business travellers. Organisations which fail to meet their “duty of care” obligations to their travellers can expect to face significant liability and commercial reputation damage. Duty of care is the obligation an organisation has to provide employees with the training, information, resources and accommodation necessary to ensure health, safety and security. As it relates to travel, duty of care clearly extends beyond the traditional workplace. Employers have been held responsible for failing to appropriately disclose the risks of travel, and for not providing suitable medical and security resources for employees away from home.

Duty of care provisions should in no way discriminate between men and women, however there are certain risks women are more likely to encounter than their male counterparts. MASC Executive’s Female business traveller security awareness programme informs, educates and empowers your female business travellers to effectively achieve their travel objectives whilst remaining safe. It will ensure your female employees have the tools they will need to stay safe whilst travelling on behalf of their organisation.

Traveleads has been ensuring our customers travel safely for almost half a century, during which time we have seen safe regions suddenly become volatile, we have witnessed outbreaks of war in once peaceful areas. We understand that sometimes there is the need to conduct business-critical travel during periods of political instability or civil unrest, which is why we have partnered with MASC Executive – your safety is ALWAYS our priority!
