People are travelling more often and more widely than ever before, both for work and for pleasure. This means they are often faced with environments that they are unfamiliar with. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 840,000 people are estimated to die each year from diarrhoea as a result of unsafe drinking water, sanitation and hand hygiene.
TB is a serious condition that is contagious and spreads through the air – it can be found in every part of the world. However, TB can be prevented and cured with proper treatment. In fact, early diagnosis and treatment is crucial.
There is an estimated 100 million cases of dengue fever each year with an increasing number of infected international travellers on the rise. As businesses continue to expand the urbanisation of previous rural areas, dengue has become a risk for employees working in tropical climates.
There is no effective treatment and no vaccine available. Ebola is highly contagious so it is vital to prevent infection.
Malaria, one of the world’s most infectious diseases, is causing an increasing challenge to businesses. With more travellers, expatriates and local workers at risk, businesses are under mounting pressure to ensure they have programmes in place to reduce this risk: for the sake of their employees and the productivity of their organisation.
Every year many business travellers contract unpleasant diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B. Suddenly a productive and successful business trip turns into weeks off work, recovering from an acute illness that could so easily have been avoided.
The recent spike in cases of MERS is a matter of growing concern to businesses with people travelling through, or working, in the Middle East. Over 800 cases of MERS have been reported worldwide, including at least 300 deaths; in Saudi Arabia there have been 688 cases with 282 deaths.
Tsunamis, floods and forest fires happen all too often, as do earthquakes, hurricanes and other extreme weather events. Global organisations consider their business travellers and expatriates are at medium risk of hurricanes, typhoons and tsunamis whilst on assignment. 52% of large organisations report dealing with occurrences of these threats over a three-year period.
It is a fact that a person could go days without food and hours without water, but would last only a few minutes without air. Air is pivotal to us, but what happens to your employees in countries where there is hazardous air pollution? Can it stop your people from achieving your business objectives?
Well-dressed business travellers, carrying smart phones and laptops, are at increased risk of being victims of petty crimes like pick-pocketing. 46% of large organisations report dealing with occurrences of this threat over a three-year period.
