Corporate Travel Safety And Well-Being 101

There are many advice guides and information packs surrounding corporate travel safety. Here at Atlas, we take the safety and well-being of our passengers seriously. The corporate travel world is vastly changing, with a focus on timely arrivals as well as copious travel requirements. Some businesses find themselves needing to travel from one meeting in Scotland to another in London on the same day. With far more people on the road, traffic can become hectic. The international way of working for some businesses has only increased as travel around the globe has become more accessible. 

As we understand our clients and their needs, we’d like to share a 101 guide on how to travel safely. 

Initial corporate travel safety: 

Ensure you have informed not only your company but family members of your whereabouts before embarking on any journey. It may also be worthwhile forwarding them a copy of your itinerary and travel bookings, this means should anything happen there is information based on your planned route.

If you suffer from travel sickness, inform your driver/pilot and ensure you take the necessary preventative actions to help dull the sickness. This can be anything from prescribed medication from your GP or travel-sickness bands. Using a solution that works for you will ensure your journey will be a smooth one. 

Prepare for unforeseen circumstances. With this, it is important to consider potential issues that may arise. Perhaps there is a cancellation and you are unable to continue on your original travel plans? Maybe weather conditions mean it is unsafe to travel. Having an idea of alternative routes or if there are any hotels nearby could help prevent unnecessary stress should you find yourself in unfortunate situations. 

Corporate travel safety for helicopter travel 

There are many rules and safety requirements that must be followed to ensure safe travel with all of our helicopters. As with all forms of aircraft, it is important to follow the safety rules and guidelines set out by your pilot. This is to not only ensure the safety of yourself but other passengers and employees. 

There are several things you can do as a passenger to help ensure the safety of the trip you are undertaking. 

– Before you board, please make sure you approach the helicopter from the correct position. Ensure you are visible to the pilot. 

– On an incline always approach or depart on a downward angle. 

– If debris is affecting your vision as you approach, crouch lower or sit down and await assistance.

– Do not approach the helicopter when the engine and rotors are starting or running down.

As a passenger you should:

– Always listen to the advice and guidance of your pilot.

– Understand the correct usage of seatbelts and headgear, as well as doors, and additional items within the helicopter. </li> 

– Hold onto hats or loose objects.

– Secure all personal technology such as cameras and phones.

– Remember the location of all safety equipment, such as life vests, maps, and emergency equipment.

– Understand any actions you are required to take in the event of an emergency. 

Your pilot should provide you with any information required and if you are unsure please speak to the team to gain further clarification. Helicopter travel is one of the fastest corporate travel options. You can book in without a flight team to suit your schedule and travel to all events necessary.
