You must secondly demonstrate evidence of business relevance.
Relevance to how your business operates, including mobility and travel.
Relevance in how safety is applied and managed whilst your people travel.
Relevance to the types and locations your people work from, including how they travel between locations.
Relevance to the hazards, threats and risks incurred by your people whilst mobile or travelling for business.
To test this within your business, select one traveller and one trip.
Now demonstrate all the above, as it applies to that specific traveller and that specific journey.
Now apply it to 10 travellers and 10 business trips.

If not, you don’t have adequate evidence to demonstrate travel safety management, in addition to having insufficient business relevance for your safety systems.
