Heads of unit will provide initial approval for off-campus fieldwork requests, followed by Dean’s offices. Contact information must be provided for all field work crew members as part of your request (in Field Work Safety Plan). In all cases, the request must include confirmation that your fieldwork activity is aligned with WorkSafeBC regulatory requirements and any Faculty specific field safety guidelines. Please include a copy of the fieldwork safety plan for the project with your request.
Due to the rapidly changing nature of public health conditions, approvals will be offered on a provisional basis, to be confirmed two weeks before the planned field activities. Confirmation is the responsibility of the PI and should be made with the appropriate Associate Dean Research unless otherwise stated.
