Travel and Fieldwork Policy

Travel and Fieldwork Code of Practice

All travel must be properly planned and the Travel Security website must be interrogated during the planning process and prior to travelling. This will enable Trip Planners to determine if it is safe to travel; any precautions that may be needed; and help with their risk assessment.

The site outlines the risk classification of any destination and gives an overview on the items below.

  • Country
  • Medical
  • Security
  • Infrastructure
  • Environmental
  • Political

Information about the specific health requirements of the trip, which are relevant to the destination being visited, can be found at: NaTHNaC

The previous resource (Control Risks) has been replaced with the website you will find via the link below (drum-cussac).

The first time you use the site you will need to fill in your details and set up a password. You will  need your institutional email to do this. You can then access the site from anywhere.
