Procedure for approval of Fieldwork Risk Assessments

  • For organised fieldtrips (undergraduate and postgraduate), please send to FOE Safety
  • For undergraduate and taught postgraduate dissertations please contact Sarah Burdall for details of online submission via the VLE. This will be in operation from Semester 2 (2016/17 academic year).
  • For staff and postgraduate researchers, please send to David Banks

Please allow up to 10 working days turnaround.

PLEASE NOTE: if fieldwork involves travel to a country where there is FCO advice, please allow up to 6 weeks as the approval process is more prolonged. It may also take slightly longer at busy fieldwork times through the year, particularly Easter to the end of Semester 2.

For further information or for any other H&S queries please contact Sarah Burdall or Becki Thomas at FOE Safety.
