"What New Zealand's Revised Safety Management Legislation Means For Business Travellers & Managers"
Presented by Tony Ridley, CEO Intelligent Travel on 12 Oct, 2015
New Zealand is about to undergo one of the most significant changes to its national workplace health and safety legislation in decades. Whilst many remain uncertain or unprepared for the changes, no group is more unprepared and inexperienced than those that manage business travel. 

In this webinar, we examine the key updates, the impact it has on business travel and the key areas those that are responsible for business travel safety management need to focus on. 

"If you can't prove it, it's not safe!"
Travel Safety Management is dependant upon "safe work systems" and is not achievable with a single process, produce or act. In much the same manner a business must identify workplace hazards, document decision making and then apply considered control measures, so too must travel, which is now considered part of the updated workplace. 

Travel managers are already significantly unprepared to act as workplace safety managers, with this deficiency amplified when individuals travel due to the far greater range of hazards to consider, control measures to apply and the diverse nature of each and every traveller or trip. 

Travel Safety Solutions, require personalised, specific and contextual evaluation of each journey, not "group averages" or generic advice that is so vague it is not specific to anyone. 

The changing face of workplace safety management will have a profound and everlasting impact on business travel....even if most business travellers and providers don't recognise the significance of this shift...yet!

From the Desk of Tony Ridley, CEO

Safety management professionals and practitioners don't speak the same language as travel managers and travel management providers. They are so far removed from each others areas of expertise, they really don't understand what the other one is saying! 

They speak in abbreviations, industry jargon, shorthand, coded expressions and insider phrases only understood after years of exposure. The problem is, they both share the same problem [managing business traveller's safety] and MUST learn to work together....of face significant loss, injury or litigation. 

Even after the idea of travel safety has supposedly been discussed and address within recent years, attendance and participation in a number of travel industry events proves that the majority of travel managers and providers are no closer to understanding their obligations, the legislations, new operational practices and the emergence of individual travel safety assessments than they were a few years ago! 

Whilst we specifically focus on New Zealand's upcoming workplace/occupational health and safety changes, the insights, observations and recommendations are equally applicable to just about any business traveller and their travel management team/provider.

"If Business Travel Can Be A Personal Experience With Each Activity Custom Made For The Individual, Why Isn't 'Travel Safety Management' Just As Personal And Unique For Each Journey?"
Produced by Intelligent Travel on 12 Oct, 2015
Travellers and their travel management providers/managers can select the seat of their choice, preferred travel experiences, room preferences, accumulate reward points and even be given a singularly unique booking code for each and every journey. The corresponding travel safety evaluation and records should be just as unique, applicable to a specific, individual person and be relevant to the travellers profile and intended travel activities. 

Any process whereby hundreds of thousands of travellers share exactly the same "rating" or evaluation is neither safety nor risk management is a newspaper at best!
