Description

Field activities are normally safe, but accidents do happen and consequences are potentially so serious that measures should be taken to reduce the risks. The field safety program elaborated in this book is straightforward, widely applicable, and scaleable to the wide range of field activities, from short roadside stops to month-long backcountry expeditions. It applies to all field activities, identifying the roles and responsibilities that must be addressed in pre-trip preparations, field operations, and post-trip follow-up. This manual is both an overview of the field safety process and a template for creating individual programs. Included are digital versions of the checklists and forms for easy customization.
