This flowchart simplifies the requirements around pre-travel risk assessments, both in the UK and overseas. It can be found via the suitcase icon on the StaffNet home page, as well as on the Compliance and risk webpages, where the content has been streamlined and updated. 

If you are planning to work away from the University – whether for a conference or meeting, or for research fieldwork – you should read or adapt the generic risk assessment or write a specific risk assessment, depending on the risks identified in your trip or your specific personal needs. You will also require pre-travel approval appropriate.

If you are planning to travel away from the University – whether it is on University business such as a conference or meeting, or for research fieldwork – your trip may require a risk assessment and pre-travel approval.

When you travel, your safety is paramount. It is therefore important that you use this flowchart prior to booking travel, to ensure all risks have been identified and you comply with the University’s Travel Policy and the University’s health and safety guidance on working off campus.
