Organisations have a duty of care to their employees when sending them overseas to work.
With the geopolitical landscape continually changing, each business needs to understand and take responsibility for any risk to their staff as well as their families, and particularly their health.
It’s no longer the case that there are only specific regions deemed as high risk across the globe. Recent incidents in the UK alone have demonstrated how quickly any city or area can become high risk within a matter of hours.
Businesses need to be prepared and constantly evaluate the geographical areas they operate in and have strategies in place to protect and extract staff in a crisis situation.
It’s essential that your staff feel comfortable in the environment they’re working in and know exactly what to do should an emergency situation arise. Furthermore, they need reassurance that they can be treated under bespoke health insurance policies should they fall ill whilst away from home or require any emergency treatment.
Health Insurance and Longer Stay Travel Insurance policies for worldwide employees as well as those staff working overseas for short periods can be complex. It’s important that you have the appropriate policies in place that will protect your staff.
Our professional team of experts here at Nugent Santé can guide you through the complexities and ensure your staff and your business are provided with the level of protection they require.
