img-industriesDuty of Care by employers is of paramount importance. In the occupational health and safety legislation, companies are held accountable as there are needs under the legislation to demonstrate management of risks for their employees. Potential consequences to employers are severe and would affect business operations and continuity with exorbitant hospital bills and evacuation costs, interruption and/ or premature cessation of expatriates’ assignments.

Organizations’ responsibility to protect the health, safety and security of employees in the remote site sectors continue to grow in complexity and with utmost importance. There are risks involved and employers must negotiate the risks associated with sending their employees into these potentially dangerous areas. Working in some of the world’s most demanding and remote environments, pervasive contagious disease, a deficient medical infrastructure and extreme environments may aggravate the underlying health conditions of the workers and reduce the success rate of overseas assignments.

Natural disasters and security threats in hostile environments can also present significant safety issues. Employers need to demonstrate due diligence in protecting their workforce and assets which demand a specific level of care. The drive towards common levels of care by the International Labour Organisation and an organisation’s Duty of Care have also impacted the industry.
