New fieldwork resources for researchers

If your research work includes field operations, visit the new Field Operations Safety webpage on the Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) website for new resources to conduct work safely in the field. The new field operations safety guidance is focused on policies and risk management practices relevant to field courses and research, international trips, research expeditions, and other outdoor excursions.

Field Operations Safety


The work of research and teaching labs at the University of Washington include a broad spectrum of field operations, such as rocket tests, water sample collection, and wildlife observation, to name just a few. EH&S is committed to supporting a safe and healthful environment for all individuals associated with field operations, including students, faculty, staff, and approved volunteers by providing guidelines and resources to lead safe, successful field courses and research trips.
