This Policy applies to all workers and contractors who are required to travel for business, on company funds. The Policy includes air travel, accommodation and car hire.

This Policy has been developed to ensure that:

  • Travel practices support the safety and wellbeing of the individual traveller, and that risks associated with travel have been assessed
  • The organisation meets its duty of care to workers and contractors while they are travelling
  • Travel is adequately planned
  • Travel practices and procedures are appropriately documented

The organisation has a duty of care to its travellers to ensure their safety and wellbeing at all times. It is the traveller’s responsibility whilst travelling to be mindful of potential risks in the local area and to act in a manner that will minimise harm.

Prior to travel been authorised the organisation must check the Smarttraveller and SafeTravel website to ensure that travelling to that country is safe to do so.
