This new guidance, available from the 'working off-site' section of our guidance web page, is for heads of schools, faculty managers, line managers, fieldwork leaders and others who may be accountable for the health and safety of staff, students and other participants engaged in work taking place off-site. It also gives practical advice to other stakeholders, such as academic researchers; students and supervisors of students undertaking independent research in the field.
This guidance does not cover student placements where the direct supervision of a student is transferred to a third party and the placement is integral to the individual student’s course. Student placements are covered in other guidance.
