SAFETY ISSUES
All students must read the guidelines on safety contained in the dissertation
handout. You must abide by them. Please complete and sign this form in the space
provided below before returning this sheet. In doing this, you confirm that you have
read, understood, and agree to abide by, these guidelines.

Many dissertations entail fieldwork, in Britain or abroad, and/or the use of laboratories. In all
these activities it is essential that students pay proper attention to safety and related issues.

When using laboratories you must familiarise yourself with, and abide by, the relevant
regulations.  If you are working in the field, you must conduct yourself in a mature,
responsible and prudent manner.

You are responsible for all travel arrangements and should seek Foreign Office advice for
travellers as appropriate. If you plan to carry out field research abroad during the summer
vacation between third and fourth year, you must organise yourself very quickly. Do not wait
until April to investigate contacts and other sources of information.

THE SCHOOL OF GEOSCIENCES DOES NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE WELL-BEING AND
SAFETY OF STUDENTS CONDUCTING FIELDWORK IN THE UK OR ELSEWHERE. BEFORE YOU
UNDERTAKE FIELDWORK YOU MUST READ THE UNIVERSITY SAFETY CODE FOR FIELDWORK
(http://www.safety.ed.ac.uk/safenet/risk_assess/FA1_Notes.shtm). IT IS ASSUMED THAT
STUDENTS WILL CONDUCT THEMSELVES IN A MATURE, RESPONSIBLE AND PRUDENT
MANNER, AND BE ALERT TO THE DEMANDS THAT MAY BE MADE UPON THEM IN UNFAMILIAR
CIRCUMSTANCES.




Declaration

I have read and understood the University of Edinburgh Safety Code and its relevance to the
preparation of my undergraduate dissertation. I agree to abide by this code and to act in a
mature, responsible, and prudent manner.
