Risk Assessments and Travel plan
Guidance and templates for risk assessments and travel plan
An essential part of preparation for foreign travel, or a field trip, is carrying out a risk assessment. This must be undertaken well in advance of your travel and it must be countersigned by your Head of School or Support Unit. A template Travel Risk Assessment is available to assist with this.
The University Insurers may require to see a copy of your authorised risk assessment form before insurance is confirmed – the Insurance Office will contact you directly if this is the case.
If you are undertaking field work, a Health and Safety Field Work Risk Assessment (FA1) should also be completed.
A Business Travel Plan has been formulated, in conjunction with AON, following the Travel Audits in 2012. This form can be used as a basis for an itinerary for all overseas business travel.
