What are the implications of legal changes and new
risk landscapes for Canadian employers? What are
the most common obstacles to effective travel
WHAT: risk management within organizations?
These questions and more will be answered in Duty
of Care in Action: Canadian Law Redefining Global
Business Travel, a complimentary webinar.
Natural disasters, social-economic uncertainty
and political unrest are reshaping "Duty of Care"
for Canadian employers and organizations. In
addition, recent changes to occupational health
and safety legislation and the expansion of
criminal negligence laws make the protection of
business travelers a legal and moral imperative
in Canada. Mr. Elson and Mr. Hyde will explore
today's business travel risk landscape and share
best practices for meeting legal and moral
imperatives for protecting traveling employees.
Attendees will receive CPP certification through
ASIS International. Security professionals who
attend will receive 1 credit hour toward CPP
through ASIS International.
