Roads are essential to a business traveller’s life, yet road crashes are one of the top five causes of medical evacuations led by International SOS. Different cultures, laws, customs and infrastructure can make every trip by road a risk – and being safer on the road isn’t just about being a safer driver. Sometimes, the safest option is not to drive at all. If you don’t know the rules of the road, highway conditions, or local language, you may be better off arranging transportation with a trusted and vetted provider. The key is to understand the risks, get the facts, and take steps to protect your safety.
Building on International SOS’s efforts to reduce road injuries and fatalities amongst business travellers through their Travel Risk: Road Safety eLearning, GRSP and International SOS Foundation have again teamed up to produce a Pocket Guide for Business Travellers. The handy guide provides travellers with useful road safety tips and thoughtful reminders on what risks exist, what to do before you travel and how to mitigate risks when travelling abroad.
