High-Risk Environments: How to Make Difficult Decisions about Travel

High-risk areas can provide distinctive work, study abroad, and mission-driven opportunities—but they also challenge organizations and their travelers to balance these opportunities with reasonable caution.

Recognizing this complex challenge, On Call International teamed up with Humentum and the KORE Foundation to engage in a discussion about how to best support and encourage travelers while meeting duty of care.

Offering best practices and unique perspectives, this educational session, now available on-demandwill help you and your organization:

      • Acquire strategies for successfully evaluating programs and itineraries to ensure health and safety risks are addressed and duty of care is met.

      • Answer the question: ‘When should travel to high-risk environments be restricted?’ and understand the different policies, procedures, and mechanisms that can help facilitate final determinations about travel itineraries.

      • Recognize signs and indicators (also known as tripwires) that should prompt your organization to reconsider its position on travel to a specific area or consider temporary suspension of a program or assignment.

      • Review traveler profiles and how specific profiles can influence experiences and reception in an area.
