Road Accidents & Safety

A major cause of medical evacuations for business travellers

According to the World Health Organization, over 1.35 million people are killed each year on the world's roads and tens of millions are injured in road crashes each year. On private or public transport and as a pedestrian, it is important to understand the risks, get the facts, and take steps to protect the safety of your travellers and your organisation.

 

Global road safety 

Different cultures, laws, customs and infrastructures can make every trip on the road a risk. Also, road safety 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.

International SOS endeavours to reduce road accidents by educating business travellers and expatriates. Our goal is always to prevent incidents from occurring and to mitigate risks to employees as much as possible.

 

Educate your travellers before they depart. Travel Risk: Road Safety eLearning teaches travellers how to reduce and respond to road incidents – potentially the most valuable 20 minutes of training they will ever take.

 

The online course features real-world scenarios and advice from the Global Road Safety Partnership, a non-profit organisation focused on road safety knowledge and good practice.
