Our Safe Transport, Travel Security and Risk Management services provides protection to companies whose employees and corporate assets are exposed to multiple threats during their business trips and high profile families.

We help companies to successfully cover their moral and legal responsibilities regarding the care and protection of their employees, families, contractors and any other person related to the company; we constantly ensure your welfare and security while working in international missions or remote areas has some kind of risk for you and the people traveling with you. We help you and your company to implement the rigorous process known as (Duty of care).

Duty of care is the legal obligation of a person or organization requiring adherence to a standard of reasonable care while performing any acts to avoid the risk of suffering a predictable injury or exposures leading to incidents impacting on their health or resulting in any person being the victim of criminal actions, or the exposure to risks of any nature whatsoever during working hours, as in a business trip of an executive officer to a country or area whose risk levels deserve due care bearing in mind that the burden arises from both acts or omissions.

At WSO, we develop and deploy appropriate travel risk management approaches to protect people against those potential damages, which, in case they are not mitigated, might result in a legal burden for you or the organization you represent.

In the United States alone, there are over one million-business trip a day. If we also consider the fact that international trips are increasing at a fast pace each year as organizations develop their businesses and become aware of the importance of having global presence, this presence also results in increased risks and more frequent incidents.

If you have employees on business trips in your company, their security must be a priority, and we are ready and qualified to help you. If your company has not discussed the (Duty of care) issue yet and the risk associated with business trips made by your employees, it is time to do so. We can provide you with a full checklist that companies may use and adapt it to their own needs. We recommend you to use this checklist to begin a dialog with your legal and risk assessment departments so as to create a policy covering both travelers and the company from any liability.

We use interactive updated risk maps that include security information in each country, city, or region. WSO assesses and analyzes each threat to plan a secure trip.
