    One-half of the people surveyed would refuse to go on a business trip because of concerns related to terrorism (28%) and political or civil unrest (21%), according to a recent poll by the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies. An infectious disease outbreak (19%) was also a top concern among survey participants.
    “Recent turmoil in Egypt and Libya has heightened the perceived risks associated with traveling internationally for business. Having the right protections in place prior to sending employees on international business trips demonstrates that a company values its most important asset— the people who are responsible for an organization’s stability, success and growth,” said Jim Villa, a senior vice president and North American manager for Chubb’s Accident & Health business. “Employers need to have a well-communicated plan in place that may include third-party resources if an emergency arises.”
