Traveling for business means exposure to potential risks such as political unrest, terrorist attacks, medical crises—and air pollution. As outlined in BCD Travel’s Inform report, Air Quality and Business Travel, only half of the 100 most visited cities worldwide have clean air. Below are tips and tricks business travelers can use to guard against the harmful effects of air pollution.

Before you travel to a destination with unhealthy air pollution:
  • Familiarize yourself with your company’s virtual meeting capabilities. Maybe you can avoid a trip to a city with poor air quality.
  • Get to know your company’s travel policy on health and emergency plans.
  • Monitor the Air Quality Index, weather websites and local media to understand if the risk is particularly high during your stay.

Risks Of The Road For The International Traveller
October 14, 2019 via International SOS

Every year road crashes kill over 1.35 million people and a staggering 40% of all road deaths globally are work related. On top of this, between 20-50 million people are injured each year. Beyond car crashes, there are also related risks such as car-jacking, shared economy considerations and other personal safety issues. In the new white paper, ‘Risks of the Road for International Travellers; the Leading Global Killer Often Overlooked in Duty of Care’, the International SOS Foundation and the Global Road Safety Partnership highlight this, often overlooked, risk, and some of the mitigation measures that can protect employees.
