BostonCoach Launches Tool To Improve Traveler Safety

Posted on April 13, 2011 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

A Travel Risk Audit Program helps ground transportation providers identify safety gaps in travel risk programs.

BOSTON — BOSTONCOACH this week launched its new Travel Risk Audit program that can review an organization’s ground-transportation providers to ensure their safety practices and protocols meet high standards and to identify any weaknesses that detract from business-traveler safety.

Virtually all of an organization’s business travelers use ground transportation services, whether via chauffeured vehicles, black cars, or taxis. Yet many organizations do not have programs in place to manage ground-transportation risk.

BostonCoach’s free Risk Audit can identify potential gaps in a travel-risk-management program and offer suggestions on how to better protect employees.

“It’s good business sense for organizations to mitigate their risk by incorporating ground transportation into their risk-management programs and by using effective duty-of-care protocols to weed out all but the safest car service providers,” said Larry Moulter, BostonCoach president and CEO, in a press release statement.

BostonCoach can scrutinize the background checks, licensing reviews and insurance tests of ground transportation providers. These can include areas such as a provider’s business history; if it is properly licensed with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA); or if various mandated insurance coverages are in place so that a company is not financially at risk from accidents.

BOSTONCOACH, one of the largest global luxury transportation providers, also can review pre-accident safety standards among providers to determine the steps they take to avoid preventable accidents.

Benchmarking these and other findings against industry-leading safety standards, BostonCoach can then report back whether an organization’s ground transportation program is within reasonable safety ranges or if action is needed to address issues.

“Travel and procurement decision makers should insist on a standard of duty of care that protects their organizations and themselves from liability, while protecting travelers from unnecessary risk,” Moulter said.
