Chubb expands business travel insurance app with e-learning modules

Chubb has expanded its Chubb Travel Smart app for business travellers with the addition of new e-learning modules.

The new integrated e-learning modules, developed in partnership with Global Warning Systems, allows users to access all functions in a single app. A record is kept of employees who have completed specific courses, giving risk managers and employers the ability to monitor usage and ensure employees are adequately prepared for their trip, Chubb said in a statement.

The insurer developed Chubb Travel Smart as its duty of care solution which helps employees manage and mitigate risks as they travel for work. Aside from e-learning modules, it also offers direct access to medical and security assistance and live location-based alerts to help avoid trouble and stay safe.

For risk managers and human resources teams, Chubb Travel Smart provides an online dashboard for an instant and complete summary of travelling employees, including their location and whether they’re in any high-risk areas. They can also send email and SMS messages direct to employees who are away on business.

“We’re delighted to announce the launch of the new eLearning functionality within Chubb Travel Smart which means employers can better demonstrate their commitment to meeting duty of care obligations,” said Glen Browne, Chubb’s deputy regional president and regional head of accident & health for Asia-Pacific, and division president for Southeast Asia. “Even more importantly, traveling employees benefit from knowing more about the risks related to business trips they’re undertaking and how to reduce them as they prepare their itineraries.”
