We’re creating a more connected travel industry, underpinned by sustainability and long-term investor relations.
Providing a safe and secure work environment is crucial to running an effective business. Moreover it is a legal and, arguably, a moral responsibility to do so. In occupational health and safety law this responsibility is termed the Primary Duty of Care. Changes to New Zealand Health and Safety legislation from 4 April 2016, together with those made in many Australian states in 2011, mean that in our region this responsibility extends to employees who travel for work.
These recent legislative changes, combined with a spate of devastating natural and man-made crises around the world, have placed the issue of Duty of Care for travelling employees firmly under the spotlight for the corporate travel sector.
Technology has a crucial role to play in helping you meet Duty of Care obligations. Choosing which solution is best for your organisation depends on a number of factors, including the industry you operate in, the size and scope of your travel program, the destinations your employees travel to, and budgetary considerations.
Amadeus has a range of solutions that can enable you to build a confident, secure travelling workforce.
