The policies, processes and procedures surrounding a travelling workforce is termed ‘Journey Management’. In essence, the goal of journey management is to ensure travelling employees arrive safely at their destination. For every journey one should ask if the journey is actually necessary; the safest journey is the one not taken. If the journey is necessary it is advised to consider other, safer, transportation options than car travel. This may include train or bus transport.
When making a road journey, whether it’s for business or pleasure, your chances of arriving safely are greatly increased by careful planning. Fail to plan adequately and your chances of being involved in an incident will increase. A Journey Management Plan is typically a set process that you follow for planning and undertaking road transport journeys in compliance with HSSE requirements, with the goal of arriving safely.
