Field Activities Plan

What is a Field Activities Plan (FAP)?

The Field Activities Plan is a University of Alberta Word template that if filled out appropriately will ensure you meet your responsibilities and obligations under the  U of A Off-Campus Activity and Travel Policy and the Occupational Health and and Safety legislation.
