Managing Risk – Why, when, how?

An ever-changing world means challenges to traveller safety that range from extreme weather conditions to civil unrest and terrorism. This document is intended to be a call to action – a risk policy is a must for any organisation that has people travelling, whether in the UK or further afield.

In producing this white paper (2015), Key Travel consulted with experts and practitioners to look at the variety of risks humanitarian workers may encounter when travelling, what the options are for mitigating those risks and how policies should be constructed and disseminated to all parties.

An effective risk management programme is an ongoing process that starts before departure, continues for the duration and re-engages with the traveller on their return and beyond. The paper covers legal elements and explores the technology available to support your policy.
