TREVOSE, Pa., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- International SOS, the world's
leading medical and security services company, will hold its concluding
webinar in the series, "Start to Finish: Eight Essential Steps for Duty of
Care," on Thursday, June 27, focusing on how organizations can implement
management controls to ensure employer/employee compliance while also tracking
and analyzing data to improve efficiency and effectiveness.

This is the eighth and final step in the eight-part complimentary webinar
series designed to enhance, challenge, and ensure that organizations are
fulfilling their Duty of Care obligations.

  Step 8: When the Dust has Settled
  How to ensure employer/employee compliance and identify gaps
  Thursday, June 27, 2013, 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

  It can be a bit mind boggling making sure all the pieces to the Duty of Care
  puzzle fit neatly in place. Are your organization and its employees
  compliant when it comes to travel risk management? How can you identify
  gaps? What checks and balances are in place to ensure that all areas are
  met? And how can data and audits help in the process?

  Led by Tim Daniel, Group Executive VP for International SOS, a panel of
  experts will guide attendees through this last critical step with the
  following in mind:

    oThe importance of establishing compliance measures and tools to ensure
      all parties are on the same page;
    oUpdating management and employees on changes in procedures;
    oThe importance of an "after action review" and the need to do this
      quickly to turn an incident into a teachable moment;
    oHow data collection and audits can be analyzed and used as benchmarks
      for updates to Duty of Care and travel risk management plans.

  Daniel will be joined by Lisbeth Claus, Ph.D, SPHR, GPHR, Global Professor
  of HR, Willamette University; James Lejcar, Jr., Life Safety Manager,
  Discover Financial Services; and Melissa Kopf, Program Manager, Global
  Security, Walgreen Co., who will take attendees through some of their own
  real-world practices.
