Atlasposting:
travel risk management software

Atlasposting is the new travel risk management software from Studio A&P that allows to assess potential geo-political and health risks, as well as personal freedom restrictions in the country of destination. Ensuring compliance with ISO 31030 international guidelines and with the Italian legal framework, companies are thus provided with a legally binding document, to protect themselves from possible criminal and civil liabilities.

What are a company's duties in case of secondments abroad?

Under Italian law, the employer has to fulfill specific obligations when sending personnel abroad.​

Alongside the general principles and rules of the special part of criminal law, mention should be made in particular of:

​Pursuant to Legislative Decree 81/08, the employer must train and inform their personnel on all possible risks they may be exposed to, including the so-called atypical exogenous risks, i.e., those types of risks that do not stem from the tasks performed. Among the non-delegable obligations of the Employer is the assessment of all risks with the consequent preparation of the Risk Assessment Document (DVR, Documento di Valutazione die Rischi).

This article states that the company must adopt the measures that, according to the particular nature of the work, experience and technique, are necessary to protect the physical integrity and moral personality of the workers.

Working conditions of Italian workers to be employed or posted abroad (amending Law No. 398 of 3 October 1987): the employment contract of Italian workers to be employed or transferred abroad provides for; insurance for each outward journey to the place of destination and return from the place itself, for cases of death or permanent disability; the type of logistical accommodation; appropriate safety measures.

In the criminal context, Legislative Decree no. 231/01 of 8 June 2001 extended the charge of the offence also to Entities (corporations, partnerships, associations), providing for a form of autonomous liability of the legal person that is in addition to that of the natural person who committed the offence, (employees, managers, stakeholders).

Within the legal Practice, it is cited the ruling of the Ministry of Labor 10/2016 regarding the assessment of environmental risks and safety in the workplace.

The company is required to take on these responsibilities in all periods of mobility, be they long or short term postings.

fast travel risk detection

Automatic pre-analysis

The alerts will allow to easily and quickly identify the major risks that may influence the secondment, both when uploading the secondment and throughout its duration:

If the assignment is located in particularly high-risk area, based on the risk map, the software will generate an alert to notify the client.

On the basis of research conducted by Cato and the Fraser Institute, the alert will indicate a particularly critical situation, in relation to socio-cultural aspects. By comparing and combining 83 different indicators, it will be possible to identify restrictions regarding the behaviour to be adopted on site, so as not to cause offence to the local population. In addition, limitations to personal freedom will be notified, as well as possible prohibitions and legal aspects to be taken into account to guarantee employees’ safety.

Pursuant to the International Health Regulations, the software will send a notification whenever the State of destination requests a mandatory vaccination to enter the country. An example is the mandatory certification against yellow fever.

If, according to the CDC source, the remaining number of vaccinations is higher than 10 (considering routine vaccinations, normally undertaken from childhood, and those specific for travellers), a second alert will be triggered, regarding health.

In case of exceeding of the critical threshold, the level will be reported by the platform through an alert.

The software will also notify the occurrence of natural disasters in the destination Country, and their evolution.
