Working in collaboration with GRSP and utilizing data from the WHO Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015, International SOS Foundation today launched a new Road Safety overlay feature to their Travel Risk Map.
The interactive Travel Risk Map has been a widely used resource for business travellers in understanding the risks posed when visiting or relocating to foreign countries in terms of travel security and medical risk.
With road crashes one of the top five causes of medical evacuations managed by International SOS, factors such as road laws, fleet and infrastructure conditions and road user behaviour need to be understood and managed before navigating new and potentially dangerous road traffic situations. The addition of the Road Safety Risk overlay will serve to educate the mobile workforce to be more aware of the vast differences in road traffic environments from country to country.

A member of the Global Road Safety Partnership since March 2013, the International SOS Foundation aims to improve the safety, security, health and welfare of people working abroad or on remote assignments.
