Small Business International Travel Resource Travel Planner

Small Business International Travel Resource Travel Planner: Employer and Employee Planning Tool for Safe and Healthy Employee Travel


Preparing your employees for international work travel before departure is crucial to safer and healthier work abroad. International work locations present unique challenges and risks, especially for small businesses with fewer than 50 employees (Cunningham 2014). Many small businesses lack dedicated travel and human resource staff to plan such trips. This puts more responsibility for safe and healthy employee travel on owners and managers.

National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health prepared the Small Business International Travel Resource to help the small business owner anticipate and plan for safe and healthy travel abroad. This resource will help you understand international travel concerns and provide you with resources to address them. You will find essential health and safety information, tools and links to valuable resources.
