Course Description

When an employee is sent off-site, including abroad, for business, that location becomes their workplace. The responsibility for duty of care extends beyond Canada's borders.

This course is designed to highlight issues people may face while travelling, including situations that may involve violence and other criminal activity, while providing a number of practical solutions for increasing the safety of travellers. Participants will be introduced to duty of care requirements, basic threat and risk analysis steps, and the essential components of a travel risk management program. A number of practical solutions to increase safety for travellers and to prepare organizations and managers to deal with a safety incident are also included in the course.

The course is delivered using an interactive e-learning solution. Quizzes throughout help to measure and encourage learning.

  • Duty of care requirements and Canadian legislation
