Welcome to the UC Riverside Field Safety Planning website
Planning a field trip for research or instructional purposes? This system was developed to assist in your creation of your own customized Field Safety Plan. If you have never created a safety plan for your field trips before there are a few answers you will need to have. You may need to consult your local field station contacts, other researchers and the websites listed as resources below. UC Riverside is committed to supporting your effort to make your trip as fruitful and save as possible; please contact any of the people listed below for assistance.
You will need to know answers to these questions:
Who is going on the trip their contact information and their next of kin...
Where you are going, the local contacts and nearest hospital…
The diseases endemic at your field locations…
Is there civil unrest along your travel route?
Is the country, region or city on the State Department list of countries and regions with current travel warnings? (Special Travel Insurance may be required. Contact the UCR Risk Manager. )
How will people travel to the field site(s); and between or around the field locations? (Who will drive, what is the vehicle insurance coverage?) Will you be flying? Using a boat or other watercraft?
What are the activities that will be taking place, do they require any special precautions or insurance?
