Protect your pupils in an unfamiliar environment

Learning outside the classroom builds a pupil’s confidence and provides rich experiences as well as vital preparation for life beyond academia. But taking young people to an unfamiliar environment presents a very unique set of health and security challenges.

While outdoor activities in remote locations are an adventure for explorers, school trips have the potential to turn into a reputational and costly nightmare. Even a small injury or loss of a passport can cause a major issue when in a remote location and miles away from a phone or developed city.

International SOS is playing a leading role in providing specific advice and support for medical and security risks, no matter where your people are. Our specialist teams are working around the clock to keep them protected and business moving.
