There are a number of things to remember about working safely in the field, or conducting off-site activities.
LSE’s Health and Safety team provide some good guidance for those considering fieldwork and other off-site activities:
- Fieldwork and other off-site activities policy statement
- Health and Safety guide for fieldwork and off-site activities
- Fieldwork and off-site visits
When working remotely or abroad, be aware of handling sensitive data in locations where officials can demand access. For example, see the US Border Guide for Travellers Carrying Digital Devices by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
