Travel Safety and Security Programme Optimisation

Are you looking to improve your existing travel safety and security programme?

We'll review your existing programme and pinpoint areas for improvement. Where possible, we'll identify opportunities to streamline approaches and save cost.

If your organisation lacks a travel security program, we can help you build one from scratch.

Our approach adheres to the ISO 31030:2021 Travel Risk Management standard and international best practices, ensuring high-quality and effective solutions.

Journey Management Planning

Are you considering sending employees to emerging markets or remote areas?

If you're planning to send employee further afield, we'll help you to assess potential risks and develop a detailed journey management plan. The journey management plan will cover arrival protocols, ground transportation, accommodations, communications, medical support, and contingency planning.

Our rigorous approach to planning will ensure that risks are anticipated and plans are in place to minimise the likelihood and consequence of adverse events impacting your travellers.

Contingency Planning

Do you routinely send employees to locations where you don't have a fixed presence?

If you're sending travellers to medium and high-risk locations where you don't have an office, effective contingency planning is an essential aspect of proactive risk management.

We can develop comprehensive contingency plans that will incorporate shelter-in-place, domestic relocation and international evacuation options. We'll also identify the necessary local resources to underpin different contingency options, including medical, security, aviation and ground transport providers.

Our contingency plans are designed to fail gracefully. Should one option fail, other options will be available. The format of our plans makes it easy to decide when to execute different options.
