Organisations have a duty of care obligation to all their travellers whilst they’re away on business; part of this duty may be the production of a travel risk policy.

A travel risk policy details what organisation-specific dangers a company is susceptible to, e.g. a mining company that has frequent trips to a country with a high level of conflict. The travel risk policy then details how any risks should be managed, clearly detailing the process, and who is responsible for what action. Travel management companies can help organisations define and implement travel risk policies.
