Information on how to manage the risks associated with fieldwork and overseas travel during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis can be found on our dedicated page: What is the position on fieldwork/ travelling on University business?

Staff and students often undertake fieldwork in the UK and overseas. Fieldwork is any practical work carried out away from the University premises for the purposes of University related research and /or teaching. Heads of department maintain a responsibility for the health and safety of their staff and students on fieldwork. The Safety in Fieldwork policy statement sets out the arrangements for the safe management of fieldwork.

Where fieldwork is undertaken overseas, you should also refer to the University policy statement on overseas travel.
