Practical Safety Solutions When Travelling for Work

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has developed a
new e-course that focuses on safety issues and travel incidents that may arise
when travelling for work purposes.

"When an employee is sent off-site, including abroad, for business, that
location becomes their workplace,” says Chris Moore, Manager, Training and
Education Services at the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety
(CCOHS).

The Travel Safety for Canadian Businesses e-course, will provide participants
with an introduction to duty of care requirements, basic threat and risk
analysis steps, components of a travel risk management program, solutions to
increase safety for travelers and how to deal with safety incidents.

Topics will include: duty of care requirements and Canadian legislation; duty
of care and risk analysis; organizational and individual preparation and how to
deal with an incident and post-incident support.

"We wanted to create this course to educate workers and their employers about
personal safety, security measures and conducting travel risk assessments when
working off-site for business,” says Moore.
