BS 8848 workshops

BS 8848: a specification for the provision of visits, fieldwork, expeditions and adventurous activities outside the UK.

  • September 2016 date TBC
  • Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)
  • Full day workshop

What is BS 8848?
British Standard 8848 specifies operational requirements for those responsible for organising overseas activities and student placements abroad.  

Why should I use BS 8848?
All who understand BS 8848 will be better informed about the risks and safety management procedures that good practice indicates should be in place before fieldwork begins.

The RGS-IBG run workshops are designed for those wishing to use BS 8848 to evaluate the existing safety management procedures within their organisation against the national standard.

Who can attend these workshops?
These workshops are open to everyone interested in complying with the Standard or using it to benchmark safety management practices within their organisations against the Standard.

Those in an operations role trying to implement the standard within their organisations, might consider also attending our Off-site Safety Management training.

Next date: September 2016 date TBC
Cost: RGS-IBG members £171/ Non-members £190 (incl. VAT)
Venue: Royal Geographical Society, London, SW7 2AR
Booking: Please email go@rgs.org if you are interested in attending our workshop in September 2016. A date will be confirmed soon.
