Travel Safety

Travel is a rich and rewarding experience. Despite the risks of crime, terrorism, and other dangers, increased awareness of potential problems and careful planning will reduce the chances of your trip being spoiled with unpleasant memories or injuries.

Safe travel begins before your trip and includes simple precautions to make your residence safe and secureóboth at home and on your trip. Whether a house, hotel, apartment, or dormitory, you cannot rest easily without attending to this.

Safe travel also involves careful consideration of how and what you pack, as well as what items you carry on board the plane, train, ship, or other means of transportation. Mayer Nudell's extensive experience can help you plan for this.

Staying on top of events...... Before they happen..... When they happen....... protect your people and facilities worldwide!

Going international offers unparalleled opportunities. At the same time, the associated risks are significant and differ from those accompanying investments in your own country. Trade barriers and protected markets will disappear, but political change and turmoil can threaten even the best-planned investment or project.
  • A multi-national corporationís satellite telecommunications system in Indonesia was nationalized.
  • A U.S.corporationís plan to invest $2.8 billion in a power plant in India was nearly jeopardized when a nationalist opposition party won state elections.
  • A Japanese-led consortiumís toll road concession in Thailand fell apart when the government made last-minute demands.
  • Political violence threatened foreigners in Algeria.
  • A Canadian company's operations in Sudan are accused of fomenting civil war and slavery.
No country is immune from such developments. Economic development does not reduce nationalist opposition to foreign investment. Opposition politicians may be looking for ways to attack a government. Even an obvious need for foreign investment may not provide complete security for foreign companies. Governments may decide that their original agreements are no longer advantageous. In fact, one part of a government may act without regard for a countryís overall interests.

International operations demand constant, continuing, and timely information. In order to make the best possible business judgements, you must know what is happening in the places where you have (or plan to have) people and facilities. This calls for constant monitoring and accurate assessment of threats and other significant developments that might affect operations. But it is not always easy to find the specific information that you require. Mayer Nudellís information service can ensure that such information is provided to management on a schedule of your choosing for its use in evaluating decisions and liabilities. Sources include major international wire services, government and military organizations, and private sector contacts.

A crisis can occur at any time. Will your organization be ready for it? Do you have the plans, the trained people, and the tested procedures? Or will you simply engage in damage limitation?

Without advance planning and preparations, unexpected and very serious complications will result. Your public image can be damaged for years to come regardless of how well you resolved the crisis.

Do your crisis plans identify who has the authority to make decisions in an emergency? Are key personnel aware of basic policy decisions?

Crisis management skills can be developed through experience and training. In-house staff does not necessarily have either. Mayer Nudell's specialized consulting services can provide you and your organization with the confidence to meet any emergency. Whether you are beginning your planning process or you have a plan which is untested, NOW is the time to evaluate your needs and to test your planning and preparation.

Contingency planning and crisis management training are dynamic processes requiring integration of internal and external assets for maximum effectiveness. They are not one-shot operations to be filed until the next crisis. You must develop these tools and continually sharpen them!

  • Country Studies
  • Threat and Vulnerability Assessments
