Their Assistance App provides medical and travel security information to business travellers, including many employees of Menzies Aviation.
The Duty of Care Awards recognise outstanding achievements in meeting standards of health, safety and security within the workplace. This year’s Summit and Award Ceremony will be held in Chicago on 17 May, with the theme of Empowering Sustainability and Resilience. The Summit brings together industry-leading experts for discussion and debate, practical case studies and networking opportunities.
Johan Lotriet, Group Chief Security Officer, said: “Being shortlisted for a Duty of Care Award shows that we are really fulfilling a key remit of the Excellence Manifesto: setting the highest standards for safety, security and performance. Debbie Thomas, SeMS Resource Coordinator, has been the driving force behind the co-ordinating, development, implementation and management of functions such as International SOS, Fact24, Travel Tracker, Kenyon and Country Risk Assessments. As a global company with travel at the heart of our operations, this recognition from International SOS is a great honour, and we will continue to improve these standards as our highest priority.”
