Field Safety

Field Research Tools and Templates

The Field Research Assessment Tool (Field RAT) provides a format for researchers to systematically identify, evaluate, and control hazards, for the purpose of reducing the risk of injuries, illness, and incidents while conducting fieldwork. A risk assessment must be conducted prior to conducting fieldwork for the first time.

After the Field RAT is complete, use the information to complete a Field Safety Plan.
