The Travel Risk Map 2018 displays each country’s medical risk rating and travel security risk rating. The result is a comprehensive overview of risks by destination, highlighting to organisations the need for travel risk mitigation efforts.
International SOS has concurrently revealed the latest insights into the actions and attitudes of business decision-makers when it comes to the health, safety and security of their global mobile workforce. The Ipsos MORI Global Business Resilience Trends Watch 2018 survey reveals that the perception of risk remains elevated, and while organisations are increasingly implementing prevention and mitigation measures, there are still opportunities for improvement.
The survey found that travel plans were changed predominantly due to concerns over security threats (58%), followed by natural disasters (43%). At a global level, these were followed by country risk ratings (42%) and civil unrest (34%). Meanwhile, the most frequent step taken by organisations in response to travel health and security concerns was the introduction of pre-trip and during trip emails (39%). However, organisations still face challenges in ensuring the health and security of travellers, including educating employees about travel risks (53%), communicating with employees in a crisis, and ensuring they have read pre-travel information (both 44%).
