We help organisations mitigate risk for ultimate peace of mind when travelling
Travel risk management is an important part of any organisation’s overall risk consideration. By understanding the risks associated with corporate travel, organisations can ensure their employees are safe and secure when travelling for business purposes.
However, organisations rarely have a global team that is available to monitor risk exposure 24/7. Therefore, partnering with a reputed travel risk management company is often essential for businesses that want to manage corporate travel risk and keep their employees travelling safely and securely.
At World Travel Protection, we offer comprehensive travel risk management solutions to ensure your duty of care obligations for your employees are met. We have experience in managing risks associated with everything from medical emergencies to natural catastrophes and political violence.
What Is Travel Risk Management?
Travel risk management involves assessing the potential risks associated with travelling, such as theft, personal injury or illness, violence, accidents, or natural disasters. This may involve researching the current political situation in a given country, obtaining up-to-date information on health standards, pandemics and threats in the area, familiarising yourself with laws and regulations that may affect travellers, and assessing any other type of threats.
After identifying the potential travel risks, a company must then develop policies and procedures to mitigate those risks so employees can feel confident in their safety while travelling. Solutions such as real-time location sharing can provide visibility into where travellers are located at all times during their trip, a crisis line can help during a medical emergency or security incident and so much more.
Whatever the risk, companies and their travel managers should ensure that they have a clear procedure in place for responding to and managing crises if they occur. Such efforts will ultimately lead to a safer travelling experience for all involved, ensuring business continuity and operational resilience.

How Travel Risk Management Can Help My Organisation
Travel Risk Management Tech & Tools
With the rise of globalisation, more and more businesses are sending employees to travel to different parts of the world. While this can be exciting for employees, it can also be dangerous.
By using digital tools to track employee travel patterns, corporate travel departments can identify potential areas of risk in the country they are travelling to. This allows them to monitor employee safety and security while they are on the road and have the intel and foresight to determine whether or not to send them on the trip.
Traveller Location Tracking
Tracking and monitoring employee journeys is critical. With World Travel Protection’s travel risk management software, travellers have the ability to share their location within a general 5km radius. This ensures they receive relevant information while also alleviating concerns of constant tracking.
High-precision tracking is also available and triggered when the traveller activates the emergency call button in their Travel Assist App.
Trip Risk Assessments
Effective safety is all about assessing and mitigating risk in different environments. This is especially important when sending employees on business trips, whether local or abroad. In order to ensure the safety of a corporate traveller, a travel risk assessment should be conducted prior to departure.
These can involve researching the destination for any potential dangers, confirming the traveller has comprehensive travel insurance coverage, and outlining clear emergency procedures in case of trouble. World Travel Protection helps you compile your travel risk assessment and take care of any emergencies or complications, should they occur.
Duty of Care Obligation
Companies are held accountable for complying with the duty of care obligation when sending employees away on business trips – it’s a responsibility that should be taken seriously as it ensures fairness towards workers and provides them with extra protection when circumstances may become dangerous or uncomfortable beyond their control on a journey.
Our travel risk management programs help you fulfill your duty of care obligations. Using our self-audit tool, organisations can benchmark travel risk management policies against the ISO 31030 standard. This is a great way to ensure that you’re protecting your people in the right way and fulfilling your duty of care obligations.
