Guidance on Safety in Fieldwork

The purpose of this guidanceis to ensure that fieldwork activities are properly assessed and appropriate control measures are implemented.

The University has adopted the Guidance on Safety in Fieldwork jointly published by the University Safety and Health Association (USHA) and the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA).

The definition of fieldwork is wide and embraces activities that perhaps may not be thought of as fieldwork, such as social survey interviews.

The Code of Practice gives guidance on how to assess the safety aspects of fieldwork and the precautions that should be implemented.
