IIRSM and TRIP establish travel risk partnership

The International Institute of Risk and Safety Management and the Travel Risk and Incident Prevention Group have joined forces to provide professional development and training.

Speaking about the partnership, TRIP Group CEO Lloyd Figgins said: “We’re delighted to an-nounce the TRIP Group partnership with IIRSM, and to be able to provide our members with access to a range or risk resources and capability.

“IIRSM have a wealth of knowledge and tools to help organisations be the best they can pos-sibly be when it comes to risk management. We are very excited to be working alongside them and the opportunities it will bring for both organisations and all of our members.

“Oversees business travel has continued to some degree during the pandemic, but only now are we really starting to see more widespread business travel taking place. The volatility of overseas travel will continue and organisations, more than ever, need to have robust risk management plans in place to safeguard the welfare of their people."

IIRSM’s CEO Phillip Pearson added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with the TRIP Group, and to be able to provide our members with access to a range of resources and experts in all areas of travel risk.

“The well-being of our people is paramount. The continued uncertainty over international travel, which is here to stay, means it has never been so important to have robust risk and safety plans in place, to ensure the safety of our people whilst travelling. Everyone has the right to return home safely from work.”
