Health & Safety

Section 3: Safe and Responsible Expeditions - essential reading.

Preparing a formal Risk Assessment is a pre-requisite for any expedition and fieldwork, particularly those involving young people.

There are chapters on the legal context to this, other aspects of expeditions in particular copyright, and on the recent UK government guidance on school visits, as well as vital information on Insurance and Expedition Medicine.

A chapter on minimising your impact on both the environment and the people amongst whom you work reflects the Society’s commitment to encouraging responsible expeditions.

The Health & safety section includes chapters on:
