Workshop on travel risk and employee safety organised by The Security Institute

by Brian Sims

In an increasingly complex and unpredictable world, managing organisational travel risk and employee safety while overseas has become ever-more important for today’s organisations. With that in mind, The Security Institute has organised a one-day workshop examining a range of tools and approaches, as well as providing a unique insight into how the Met Office has developed its own effective travel risk management system in conjunction with Edson Tiger.

The event takes place on Friday 27 September from 9.30 am until 3.30 pm at the Met Office’s premises in Exeter and is sponsored by both the Met Office and Edson Tiger.

The workshop will cover everything from overall system design through to the selection of local in-country providers and services and personal travel and security training solutions.
