When organisations send people to work abroad, the duty of care they owe their workers continues to exist. This guide sets out the safety, health and security responsibilities of organisations for internationally-mobile workers. Being aware of the risks of working in an unfamiliar environment is not sufficient.
The guide covers travelling on roads, choosing accommodation and personal security. One chapter looks at managing medical risks. Another discusses the arrangements that may be required for women, older workers, workers with disabilities, LGBT workers, and students on placement. The final chapters consider how to respond to a critical situation, and the need for an emergency action plan, with clear structures and communication channels. Action points, case studies and information panels make an accessible guide for chief executives and seasoned OSH professionals alike.
