Finnish companies are becoming more and more international and more commonly expanding business operations to different parts of the world. This means that the staff also needs to travel more. At the same time, companies are aware of the impact of occupational health and safety work on the success, reputation and on business continuity. Employers and health and safety operators thus face new challenges:
- How to ensure occupational safety when an employee travels to a particularly unsafe country or region?
- How to apply the company’s health and safety norms when it operates in a foreign country?
- How to consider different working cultures and environments?
