Travel Risk Management for Higher Education

Safeguarding the Academic Journey with a Tailored Risk Management Solution.

Managing travel risk for higher education is challenging. A high volume of trips, compliance reluctance and evolving duty of care legislation increase the complexity. RiskPal’s risk assessment software and travel risk management expertise simplify these processes, helping educators to keep their people safe and improve oversight. At RiskPal, we specialise in protecting individuals in high-risk locations and making compliance straightforward.

Does This Sound Familiar?



Research, partnerships and conferences take students and staff all over the world. Risk assessment is essential for duty of care and preparing for the unexpected.

RiskPal offers extensive safety guidance, with experts always on-hand to help you build a robust risk management process at scale and protect your teams, both abroad and at home.



Achieving by-in and compliance across diverse users is challenging, especially when some are resistant to adopting new technology.

RiskPal’s user-centric and intuitive design makes it easy to adopt, while advanced analytics give you greater oversight. If you need extra support, our dedicated client success team is here to help.



Educational institutions can be fragmented and complex, making it difficult to achieve uniformity in health and safety. While safety needs may vary, they don’t need to be managed separately in different systems or folders.

RiskPal offers a flexible and customisable platform to address multiple safety requirements in one place.

Using a cloud-based system means you spend your time thinking about your specific project rather than constantly updating old forms. The system offers up practical advice on how to mitigate risks, while also giving you the option to add your own protocols for more specific tasks.
