Best Practices for Duty of Care


If your business enterprise involves corporate travel, you are likely already aware of the mounting safety concerns that impact your business travelers. These concerns, which fall under what is legally referred to as “Duty of Care,” place certain safety bonuses upon the travel arranger responsible. This may be either an in-house or a contracted travel arranger, but typically the Duty of Care contract focuses on taking all reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of the business travelers. All arrangements and accommodations must meet standards, and travelers must be immediately contacted with any relevant breaking news such as world events or weather events that could impact their travel arrangements in a negative manner.


Many new travel arrangers think that Duty of Care refers primarily to international travel, but in reality, it equally applies to domestic travel as well. Of course, international travelers face their own challenges, such as large time differences, major cultural and political divides, and language barriers. In such cases, particularly any travel to politically unstable areas, it is highly advised to use a travel arranger with specific international expertise and even embassy contacts. However, even in domestic travel, it is critical to provide safe transportation and accommodations for all clients, contractors, or employees flying under your company banner.


One important part of travel safety is to consider your travelers’ ground transportation options. Attempting to catch public transportation or even hail taxi cabs in an unfamiliar city can be confusing, stressful, and ultimately unsafe for business travelers.
