Business Travel Insurance
Traveling for business can be both stressful and enjoyable. Between preparing for meetings and your daily business activities, you are able to see an entirely different city. Unfortunately, there is also much that can go wrong on a business trip, especially as a business owner. Keep these tips in mind to ensure that all of your employees stay safe during their next business trip.
- Check your travel insurance policy to ensure that it will provide enough health, accident, and emergency response coverage for any employees that will be traveling.
- Make sure that your employees know how to get ahold of their travel assistance provider while they are traveling, especially if they will be visiting a different country.
- Figure out a method for keeping track of all employee travel, and create a communication system in case of any emergency situation.
- Do not send a high number of employees, especially vital employees, in the same vehicle, no matter if it is a car, train, bus, or airplane.
- Get a pre-travel risk assessment for every destination that you are planning on sending an employee, especially if they are headed to an area that has a known risk.
- Conduct specific training programs and orientations to review travel risks and response protocols with any employees who will be traveling.
- If any employees have known health risks or are taking any special medications, make sure that they are healthy enough for travel and will have access to local health facilities.
- Check the security setting on all laptops and other electronic devices, including access to your legacy systems and networks. Inform all employees on the proper procedures to follow if they think that a system has been compromised.
