Overseas Travel - Health and Safety

Where travel overseas is on University business relevant University Policies and rules apply.

Those travelling overseas must assess any risks associated with the planned travel. This may include how individuals are travelling to and from their proposed destination, accommodation considerations and any work conducted on university business during the trip. The person authorising the travel should assure themselves that the arrangements are acceptable.

Guidance on overseas travel procedures has been developed, in conjunction with other University departments, to help travellers understand the main risks associated with working on university business overseas. These should be read in full and will be able to assist in implementing practical control measures before, during and post trip. Any accidents, untoward incidents and health and safety issues whilst on University business must be reported to the Health and Safety DepartmentLink opens in a new window.

Overseas Travel Process Flowcharts have been developed to guide travellers on which process they will need to follow. All information regarding travel can be found on the Universities 'Travel Hub' webpage.
