Safety and Security of travelers consistently tops the list of travel management priorities, and it will be a key focus as firms prepare for the return to travel.

It has been well established that organizations need to demonstrate a duty of care to their staff when they travel on company business; however, duty of care can mean different things depending on who you ask.

ISO 31030 establishes clear guidelines for assessing risks related to travel – whether physical, hygiene or cyber related – and how to manage and benchmark those risks. It will remove the guesswork and provide clarity in an area that’s never been more critical for companies and their travelers.

This course brings together experts in travel risk management to provide clear guidance on risk and a practical step-by-step guide on how to implement the policies and procedures to run a robust travel risk management program in your own organization.


Who Should Take this Course?

  • Travel Managers and Directors
  • Procurement or other Managers with a responsibility for travel


How Will this Course Be Delivered?

This course will be delivered as a one-day, virtual event with expert speaker presentations, group sessions and individual exercises to complete.
