CERC Central Region Event - Duty of Care and Employee Business Travel
Register Map this EventMap this Event Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

Business travel, whether international or domestic, exposes employees to higher levels of risk. Away from the familiarity of home, travelers can be put into situations that expose them to a range of health, safety and security hazards. This increased level of risk for travelling employees, heightens the corporate liability of employers that have a legal and moral duty of care to their staff.

Faced with the pressure to comply with industry guidelines, legislation, budgets and client expectations, corporate leaders are being urged to take a company-wide and strategic approach to travel risk management.


Inherent in the employer-employee relationship is an employer’s duty of care for its employees’ health, safety and well-being. In today’s labour market, routine business travel and an employee’s assignment abroad are not only common, but are an integral part of the daily operations of multi-national companies. Risks inherent to employee travel remain a growing concern as companies continue to globalize their operations.


Please join us for an interactive session on March 6th at the Toronto Doubletree Hilton, that includes 3 industry experts from International SOS ,Sherrard KuzzLLP,Weichert Workforce Mobility, and 2 corporate representatives from TD Bank and Enbridge.


The discussion will include:

  • Duty of Care- What should companies be thinking about in regards to Business Travelers?

  • What are the risks of not having a BT policy? We will discuss the importance of developing and communicating to all employees a well-structured travel management policy;

  • Setting up communication systems which allow the employer to reach the employee while travelling;

  • Establishing a system to track and support employees while travelling;

  • Setting up immediate response plans in case of emergency.

  • What do small companies without the financial resources of large companies do with their business travelers? What options are available to them?

  • What software programs for tracking purposes are available?
