Travel & Fieldwork Safety
Fieldwork activities can expose participants to significant risks to their health, safety or well-being, and therefore, the Health, Safety & Environment Unit has developed the Travel and Fieldwork Safety Policy (link to policy) and Procedures (PDF)
The Travel Authorization Form
For faculty and/or staff travelling outside of Regina, but within North America for business (conferences, seminars, meetings, etc) where students are NOT included. Prior to departure complete The Travel Authorization Form (link) and submit to Financial Services.
The Travel Authorization Form is a Financial Services document that also includes a Risk Assessment portion which pertains to all faculty, staff and sports teams. Health, Safety & Environment can assist with performing comprehensive risk assessments.
