Best practice travel risk management strategies

Back to blog

Pre-trip

  • Perform a risk/vulnerability assessment - to identify risks to personal safety
  • Authorisation – have a procedure for deciding if travel should take place
  • Training – policy communication, security briefings, situation awareness; informed travellers are better prepared
  • Mitigate – minimise risk by providing secure transportation or close protection

 

Active-trip

  • Track – know where travellers are
  • Monitor - be aware of active or emerging threats and incidents that could impact business travellers and assets
  • In a major incident, employ a system to:

Alert: who is there and are they safe?

Divert: who is en-route and needs to be diverted?

Stop: who is due to travel and needs to be stopped?

Respond: invoke incident/crisis management plans for impacted travellers
