The Zika virus outbreak and ensuing official travel advisories are yet another wake up call that international employee security should be broadly defined.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 03, 2016
IMG GlobalSecur, a top firm in the employee and executive international travel security consulting space, has issued a travel advisory bulletin on the Zika virus and overseas employee security. The company views international employee and executive security through a broad lense, and advises clients not only on issues such as terrorism and workplace violence but also on medical security and natural disaster risk exposure.
"The Zika virus outbreak and ensuing official travel advisories are yet another wake up call that international employee security should be broadly defined," explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. "We are advising the general public as well as subscribers to our international employee security alert service on ways to protect employees and executives who must travel to affected countries such as Brazil or Mexico."

Highlights of Zika Virus Travel Advisory
While most travel advisories are general in nature, the IMG Zika virus travel advisory focuses on corporate- and employee-related travel issues to Zika virus affected countries such as Brazil or Mexico. First, HR managers and employers are advised to educate themselves on the basics of the Zika virus and that its primary threat is to pregnant employees or to female employees in their childbearing years. Second, IMG advises caution when these employees might travel to affected areas; if possible, travel might be postponed until the situation becomes clearer. Third, the advisory gives practical advice to potential business travelers about ways to reduce exposure to mosquitoes as well as symptoms of the virus itself. Interested parties are urged to visit the website to read the advisory in full.
