LONDON

The International SOS Foundation launches the first annual Global Duty of Care Awards to recognise organisations and individuals who have made a significant contribution to protecting their staff as they travel and work overseas.

The International SOS Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation with the goal of improving the safety, security, health and welfare of people working abroad or on remote assignments through the study, understanding and mitigation of potential risks.

Laurent Fourier, Director of the International SOS Foundation, said:

“A considerable amount of effort is involved across departments to support travelling staff. The goal of the awards is to recognise those involved in creating and implementing the programmes that mitigate travel, health and security risks to workers when they are abroad. We want to shine a light on best practices to raise standards in Duty of Care.”

The global call for submissions is now open to all organisations, institutions and non-governmental organisations. The 2016 Global Duty of Care Awards will be presented in the following categories:

1. Innovation

2. Thought Leadership

3. Resilient Care

4. Communication

5. Partnership

One winner will be chosen and presented an award for each of the five categories. Winners will be announced at the awards gala dinner on Thursday, 16 June 2016 at The Mira Boutique Hotel, Hong Kong.

The judging panel includes internationally recognised leaders in fields related to Duty of Care.1

About International SOS Foundation

Established in 2011, the International SOS Foundation ― Ambassadors for Duty of Care www.internationalsosfoundation.org – has the goal of improving the safety, security, health and welfare of people working abroad or on remote assignments through the study, understanding and mitigation of potential risks. The escalation of globalisation has enabled more individuals to work across borders and in unfamiliar environments; exposure to risks which can impact personal health, security and safety increases along with travel.

The foundation is a registered charity and was started with a grant from International SOS. It is a fully independent, non-profit organisation.
