The new ISO Travel Risk Management standard and the impact on the traveller in the future

Welcome to join another Nordic webinar, organised by all 4 Nordic Business Travel Associations; DBTA, FBTA, SBTA and NBTA. This time we will take a look at The new ISO Travel Risk Management standard and the impact on the traveller in the future, in particular around Health Security and Covid-19 assurance. 

Speaker: Bob Quick, Director and Founder of GSA (Global Secure Solutions Ltd), an independent standard and assessment system for hotel security.   

Some aspects of business travel have regulatory or quality regimes (e.g. aviation, rail transportation etc,) that help tremendously when assessing risk, but there is a problem when selecting accommodation. There are no consistent global standards for accommodation safety, hygiene and security. Hotels are inherently vulnerable to criminals and terrorists alike. Crime analysis in many countries cites that hotels are perceived as ‘soft’ targets, rich in opportunity to target people or their possessions. With the recent Covid-19 pandemic corporates are asking what are the standards for hotels and how do they know that their travellers are safe?

The introduction of the ‘Travel Risk Management’ standard is long overdue. Travel risk is real, and represents a major risk for many employees and their employers. Whilst the risks and threats cannot all be eliminated; they can be minimised and mitigated by adopting tried and tested risk management and mitigation processes. The ISO standards development process has assembled considerable expertise at a global level to consider these threats and risks, including Covid 19 and to identify
the best management and mitigation practices to help make travel a safer endeavour.

We are going to discuss how the new ISO 31030 Travel Risk Management Standard will assist corporate travel managers in adopting good practice, which will improve
the travel experience and meet the duty of care.

The webinar will take place on Thursday, Oct 1st 14.00 – 14.30 CET / 15.00 – 15.30 Finnish time

There is no participation fee for DBTA, FBTA, NBTA and SBTA members. Non members can join against a fee of SEK 700 excl VAT.
