Faculties, departments, units and individual travelers share responsibility with the University to assess and manage the risk of off-campus activities and travel, particularly when students are involved.
The appropriate Dean, Chair or Vice-President may recommend that faculty, postdoctoral fellow and staff travelers cancel any off-campus activity or travel if it is believed the risks are unacceptable or unwarranted and cannot be reasonably managed.
As the supervisor or approver, you are responsible for the following tasks:
- Review the Off-Campus Activity and Travel Policy.
- Review and sign-off on the proposed off-campus activity & travel plan, which will be submitted by the activity organizer (you will receive a copy by email).
- Sign off on the field activity plan and keep on file with your department (if applicable).
As the identified supervisor, you will receive a pdf copy of the planner’s submission, including the risk assessment and risk mitigation actions checklist. You should be aware of the plan and assist with risk mitigation, where needed.
