Safeguarding employees when they travel abroad
Against a backdrop of frequent business trips abroad, coupled with the instability present in many countries, ensuring the security of your employees on their travels is a major challenge, especially since, as their employer, you are also legally bound to look after the health and safety of your employees in all circumstances.
Since the SANOFI ruling of 7 December 2001 passed into case law, companies have had to go further than merely implementing measures to reduce risks: there is now an obligation to achieve a result in terms of guaranteeing the security of your employees. In the event of an accident, you may be held legally liable and systematic attempts will be made to find you guilty of an inexcusable fault.
Preventing the security risks associated with business travel is a very specific challenge. Numerous factors that are external to the company will need to be taken into account: the terrorism risk, the mode of transport, the political stability of the destination country, living conditions, etc.
