Fieldwork

The UCEA Guidance on Health and Safety in Fieldwork covers the following range of activities

  • attendance at conferences and other institutions which may be relatively low risk, to
  • the high risk challenging conditions of fieldwork in remote and hostile locations

The University Arrangements enable a risk-based approach to the safety management of fieldwork activities.

The definition of fieldwork is very wide: "any work carried out by staff or students for the purposes of teaching, research or other activities while representing the institution off-site". UCEA fieldwork guidance
