Security and health risk management specialist HX Global/Healix International has developed a new suite of tools to give risk managers control while meeting their ever-evolving duty of care obligations.
Healix Sentinel brings together five solutions to provide global organisations with essential tools to stay informed of the risks their employees and operations may face and take appropriate action wherever they are across the globe.
“This year has been extraordinary and organisations around the world are adjusting to a new way of working to ensure business continuity and productivity,” said Mike Webb, CEO of Healix International/HX Global.
“Remote working can only go so far however and it is vital for many businesses that travel resumes. While COVID-19 brings a new dynamic, all the other risks associated with working abroad, such as earthquakes, terrorist activities, or staff experiencing other health-related emergencies, remain.
“Whether it is risk associated with COVID-19, or a country’s political landscape, we understand the importance of balance. Excessive risk management programmes can be burdensome and costly, while inadequate cover leaves an organisation vulnerable to operational disruption, reputational damage, and potential litigation.”
Developed by experts in crisis management and risk mitigation, the Healix Sentinel suite of services goes beyond the traditional travel risk space to focus instead on “people risk management,” whether they are travelling or not.
With the Sentinel platform, the client risk manager—rather than the employee—is seen as the primary stakeholder. Webb added: “Often the client only has a small team, or a single individual, responsible for risk mitigation. That’s a heavy burden. The Sentinel platform addresses that by making their lives easier and acting as a force multiplier.”
Risk managers can tailor Healix Sentinel to fit their own specific requirements, choosing the mix of services that will complement and support existing security resources. Alternatively, Healix International/HX Global can provide a fully managed 24/7 “virtual” security department.
“Our holistic approach encompasses planning, preparing and taking appropriate action as and when required. By providing a solution scalable to specific needs, this new suite of offerings allows risk managers to capitalise on opportunities in challenging environments within their own risk parameters,” said Webb.
“As well as helping tackle an organisation’s risk management concerns and giving peace of mind, Healix Sentinel helps an organisation maintain a competitive advantage and will enhance its reputation as a secure and compliant organisation.”
