Raise your Game: A New Benchmark in Travel Risk Management
No athlete would enter competition season without a proper exercise plan or diet. No actor would go onstage without knowing their lines. And no travel manager would send their team across the world without sufficient information – and preparation.
The same diligence is needed when you’re managing travel risk. You need to have all your bases covered. The best way to do this? Check that your travel risk management plan is up to date and discuss risk for your specific organisation, with your Travel Management Company (TMC). Your TMC will help you to manage your duty of care requirements and recommend reliable resources that will guide you through the risk management process.
A new resource to help organisations manage travel risk has been released. The new ISO 31030; Travel Risk Management – Guidance for Organisations is a 58-page document that covers every aspect of managing risk in organisational travel.
The standard provides comprehensive information on all aspects of managing travel risk. It covers everything from planning to research, development, and execution of risk management programs for businesses of all sizes.

Over the past two years, Stage and Screen has helped many customers finetune their travel risk procedures. The team has worked round the clock to ensure a safe and confident return to travel for everyone. Information in the new standard, complements these efforts, according to Stage and Screen General Manager Adam Moon.
“In a world where risk has suddenly taken on a completely new meaning, a global standard provides an important foundation. It offers guidelines to mitigate health, safety, and security risks at all stages of the traveller’s journey,” Adam said.
Adrian O’Connell, CEO of Standards Australia, explains that although Australia’s borders are now open, there is still a lot to navigate in terms of post-pandemic travel.
“There are travel risks associated with this, including to personnel, reputation, finance, business continuity and resilience. These risks impact on an organisation’s legal, compliance and duty of care responsibilities,” Adrian said.
“ISO 31030 Travel Risk Management was developed to offer guidance to organisations on how to manage risk as a result of undertaking travel. The standard provides a structured approach to the development, implementation, evaluation and review of its travel risk management policy and program.”
