Travel Risk Management

Health and Safety

In an ever-changing world, the risks faced by international travellers are constantly evolving too. Duty of care is no longer an ethical concern but a legal obligation.

The risks of working in regions of conflict or natural disaster and the threats of targeted crime and terrorism are increasingly unpredictable. While most trips are usually incident free, it’s still important to put the necessary measures in place to protect your staff, assets and reputation.

With over 30 years’ experience of Risk Management to draw on, we have devised three training programmes which can be tailored for your organisation:


Sphere Online Travel Risk Awareness Course for Travellers

Securewest’s interactive, online Travel Risk Awareness course focuses on practical information to give travellers the knowledge to recognise potential risks, guidance on how to reduce those risks and advice on what to do should an incident occur.

The course is designed to be viewed across multiple devices and is divided into a series of modules so users can learn where and whenever they want. Its style is engaging and interactive with informative videos and case studies that aid learning.

Short quizzes in each module allow learners to measure their progress and confirm their understanding, and a final multiple-choice assessment tests their knowledge. Reporting on candidate progress and final attainment can provide organisations with an audit trail for compliance purposes.

The course is SCORM compliant and can be accessed online via a secure portal or delivered directly by an organisations own Learning Management System (LMS).


Sphere Travel Risk Management Course for Employees Responsible for Booking Travel

Securewest’s Travel Risk Management course focuses on information for employees responsible for booking and managing international travel.

This 2-day classroom-based course will help you understand emerging risks and threats for travellers and how to mitigate against them. We will look at real-life examples and offer tailored advice depending on the size of your organisation and what sector you are in.

This course will cover how to improve and implement your risk policies, procedures and travel safety program. We will examine the legal implications of your duty of care.

This course will support you to develop effective incident response protocols for when things go wrong, help to reduce traveller risk exposure and protect your organisations reputation. We will provide you with key best practices and ways they can be applied throughout your organisation.


Sphere Travel Risk Strategy Course for Senior Management

Securewest’s Travel Risk Strategy course focuses on the strategic approach to protecting your people, assets and reputation. As a responsible organisation, you have a duty of care that requires you to understand traveller risks, the impact of these on your business and practices to help mitigate those risks.
