In addition to the items mentioned in the previous two segments about injuries occurring overseas, consider the following:
Safety Investigation – A safety evaluation will likely need to be done after any injury. Note whether any remedial actions must be taken so no further injuries occur.
Medical Coordination– Work with a travel medicine company and a representative of the other country to set up a plan that provides excellent medical care if needed when employees are traveling to or stationed overseas. If you have a large project in a remote part of Brazil, for example, contingency plans for air evacuation and treatment in another country will be needed.
Site Physician – You may need to hire a doctor for on-site to ensure proper triage and medical care.
