TDG specialises in all of these areas and will make this process as seamless as possible. We have advanced technology so we can monitor where each of our groups are around the world, and provide the tour leader notification of any travel and safety alerts while on tour.

CHILD SAFE COMPLIANCE
At the beginning of 2017 the State Government of Victoria introduced new Child Safe Legislation, in light of the enquiry into institutional child abuse.
As a result of this legislation, organisations involved in the care of children must now demonstrate compliance by implementing risk mitigation measures against physical violence, sexual offences, emotional or psychological abuse and serious neglect.

TDG is also proud to partner with RollCall™ Safety Solutions Pty Ltd to track and to monitor tour members, using near field magnetic (NFC) swipe-cards in combination with smart phone technology.
ON DEMAND CRISIS CONSULTATION
TDG has unlimited access to security/medical experts and crisis response specialists and can receive advice on addressing potential concerns and dealing with the issues relating to the travel risks.

TDG is also proud to partner with RollCall™ to track and to monitor tour members, using near field magnetic (NFC) swipe cards in combination with smart phone technology.
Tour members issued with NFM cards are able to swipe against a dedicated tour leader’s smart phone to immediately push time and location stamped data to head office databases or other named smart phones.
This provides a real-time audit trail of the traveller’s whereabouts at agreed checkpoints, getting on and off vehicles, and orienteering/exiting accommodation facilities.
Using reverse geocoding not only displays and records the time of each check on or off, but also displays the mapped location anywhere in the world. The application for this technology is wide ranging and state-of-art and is developed exclusively for TDG.
