The 'Singapore Declaration' on work-related travel safety, Health & security

Global assignments are predicted to grow by 50% by 2020*, Duty of Care cross-border regulation is complex, mobility teams are understaffed and medical costs are forecasted to grow. In an increasingly challenging and complex world, the prevention of work-related travel safety, health and security incidents is an important element of occupational safety and health.

The International SOS Foundation would like to invite you to a Summit Meeting in Singapore on the morning of the opening of the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work. This meeting is organised with the support of Ministry of Manpower, Singapore (National Organiser of the World Congress).

We call upon world safety and health leaders to support the principles of prevention as well as supporting the ability to respond rapidly and effectively to incidents involving mobile workers by signing the Singapore Declaration on work-related travel safety, health and security at this meeting.

Join us and make a difference in your organisation and to people's lives by making a commitment to Duty of Care.
