Workplace health and safety was traditionally an inherently local topic emerging from each local jurisdiction’s own workplace health and safety code and workers’ compensation system. But in this age of multinational employers’ headquarters driven human resources initiatives, many multinationals find a strong business case to align certain aspects of workplace health and safety across borders. Multinationals now promulgate company-wide workplace health and safety initiatives—cardinal safety rules and pandemic plans, for example. In addition, multinationals now take a global approach to the related “duty of care” issue—protecting individual expatriates and international business travelers in overseas danger zones and beyond.
