Pocket-Sized Travel Safety Handbook Ideal for Travelling Staff in the Global Workplace

11 June 2019

Over the last few years we’ve all felt that the risks to our employees when travelling on business has increased. In 2019 a new report has revealed that 47% of organisations believe travel risks are on the rise . Passport to Protection, the new travel safety handbook for business travellers from Cardinus Risk Management, hopes to add another easy way to provide expert safety guidance to travellers to keep them safe.

The travel-size book, which features interactive QR codes and a perforated casualty care card and ‘Useful Contacts’ sheet, provides easy-to-read, professional guidance for just about any travel situation. It’s simple to follow and laid out in a practical and useful way, making it a valuable handbook for travel safety.

Not only does it make an ideal guide for travelling business employees, it’s a fun and enjoyable read, ensuring that your employees want to get stuck in and are engaged with the practical advice imparted in the book.

Want some advice staying safe when walking around a foreign city? Perhaps you need advice for working in a potential dangerous part of the world? Or maybe you just want to make sure you don’t alarm your hosts with a misplaced handshake? You’ll find it all in here in this simple to follow handbook.


Written by travel safety expert Andy Neal, this handbook covers nine distinct areas of travel safety, including:

  • Preparing for travel
  • Walking in foreign locations
  • Vehicle safety
  • Air travel
  • Rail travel
  • Staying in hotels
  • Hostile environments
  • Medical emergencies
  • Customs and traditions

Of the book, Andy Neal said, “I wrote this travel safety guide after years of travelling to hostile and not-so-hostile environments and seeing fellow business travellers make mistake after mistake that left them exposed to the risks of a theft, kidnap and other dangers.

It’s a culmination of my experiences and knowledge and reflects my expertise in the area of travel safety and security. My hope is that the business traveller will be able to see the risks inherent in their own experiences and subsequently correct their behaviours, ensuring that they travel more safely, and come back from business in one piece!”

Andy Hawkes, Cardinus Risk Management CEO, commented, “Travel safety is now a key element of any company’s health, safety and wellbeing risk profile, and not just in travel to so-called high-risk locations. Passport to Protection provides employees with essential information on all aspects of travel from the planning stage to the return home. The QR codes add video engagement to ensure the key safety messages are fully understood. We believe Passport to Protection sets a new standard in safe travel advice.”
