There’s always some risk of encountering an emergency during travel. A natural disaster could strike unexpectedly. A political or security situation could arise. Travel could be disrupted by an automotive or aircraft accident.
If you had employees on location at a job site during a crisis situation, do you know what you would do to locate them? What if cell phone service was down and you were unable to reach the members of your team?
Because these dangerous situations are always unforeseen, businesses need to plan ahead for potential emergency situations and implement a plan for how they would locate their employees quickly.
In fact, as an employer, you don’t just have a moral or ethical obligation to help your employees while they’re traveling. Companies have a legal obligation to provide safety measures to their company travelers when they are on the road.
What is duty of care?
Duty of care is a company’s moral responsibility and legal obligation to protect the health, safety, and security of its employees. Providing a safe work environment also extends to the time when an employee is traveling on behalf of the company.
Knowing where your employees are and responding
When an emergency happens, part of your duty of care as an employer is being able to locate your employees and respond to help them. That’s why CLC Lodging offers duty of care and risk management tools to help you keep your travelers safe and respond appropriately.
