WHAT IS ISO 31030:2021?

With organisations starting to consider returning to travel and how to go about this safely, this new ISO standard, provides vital guidance to protect the workforce. The standard, ISO 31030:2021, provides a structured approach to the development, implementation, evaluation and review of a travel risk management policy and programme, as well as an assessment and treatment of travel risks. 


Why it Matters? 

By promoting a culture where travel-related risk is taken seriously, resourced adequately, and managed effectively, the standard aims to garner recognised and realised benefits such as:

  • Contributing to business continuity capability and organisational resilience
  • Improve worker confidence in travel-related health, safety and security arrangements
  • Enabling business in high risk locations
  • Enhancing an organisation’s reputation and credibility – leading to a positive effect on competitiveness, staff turnover and talent acquisition
  • Reducing legal and financial exposure
  • Increasing general productivity
  • Contributing to meeting the sustainable development goals by strengthening the social dimension of sustainability

For over 35 years, International SOS has been at the forefront of supporting organisations' travel risk management plans. To help you understand the core components of ISO 31030, we will assess the risks impacting your workforce and guide you to integrating them into your existing plans to ensure compliance.
