Air Pollution: Clear Skies Ahead?

What employers can do to protect their employees from the health hazards of air pollution.
Webinar | 19 August 1:00 p.m. EST  

The health hazards associated with air pollution are issues employers need to discuss with their international travelers, international assignees, and their dependents. Expatriates are not only asking how they can be protected when considering assignments in places like China and India, but demanding steps be taken by their employer to make sure their health is safeguarded.
Our panel of experts will discuss some of the short- and long-term health effects, review the impact of air pollution on travelers and expatriates, and leave you with best practices that your global organization can adopt to mitigate the risks and uncertainty associated with air pollution.

Anyone who manages or is responsible for employees overseas will benefit from this webinar, including those in the areas of medical, security, human resources, business continuity, risk management, travel, HSE and legal.
