Field Safety

It is the policy of the college to protect the health and safety of all employees whether in an office, laboratory or field research site. It is the responsibility of each employee and his/her field supervisor and major professor to guard against accidents and to be prepared to the fullest extent possible for normal work conditions and emergencies. The following guidelines and resources may serve as a starting point and are in addition to those promulgated by the campus (see UC Davis Policy and Procedure Manual).
