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, supported by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) Singapore, launched a declaration during a Summit Meeting on 3 September 2017, on the opening of the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work.  Close to 200 representatives from organisations and institutions have signed the declaration in support of the principles of risk prevention with regard to work-related travel safety, health and security.
