TREVOSE, Pa., May 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


Brazil has taken the world stage as a top location for organizations seeking to expand their operations. With fast-growing mining and energy industries, Brazil presents attractive opportunities for multi-national companies. And upcoming soccer and other sporting events position this South American nation squarely in the global spotlight.

But what are the health and security concerns when it comes to doing business in Brazil? What are the challenges organizations face in sending travelers and expatriates to work and live in the country? What are best practices to ensure the employer's Duty of Care is met?

This webinar — the  third in a four-part series addressing the BRIC countries — will answer these questions and more. On-the-ground experts will give the basics of protecting the health, safety and well-being of your employees when it comes to doing business in Brazil.
