Faculty and Researchers
IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING, DO SOMETHING. As we work to create a robust culture of safety, your input and participation is invaluable. To see where we are, look at the following:
Travel (RM Travel and Driving Site)
Employees traveling internationally have access to AIG's pretravel planning assistance. Here you have access to immunizations, legal services, medical assistance and evacuation and repatriation information. Go to: AIG to see what coverage and assistance you have available to you.
Insurance (RM Insurance Coverage)
Visit our Insurance Page for more information
Minors (under 18 years of age)
You will need waivers for any person that is under the age of 18 that will be working on your site. In addition, you and other researchers that direct the minor will need background checks and training.
Volunteers (18 years and older)
Family/Friend Accompaniment Form
This Family/Friend Accompaniment form must be filled out and kept on file at the department, when friends or family are travelling with a UAF employee. If your child under the age of 12 accompanies you, you must have a caretaker that is not a researcher, volunteer or other person participating in your research.
When out in the field (glaciers, wilderness, remote, etc.) an emergency contact list must be left with your department should an accident, injury or delay of return occur. The person responsible for the list should be available 24/7. Emergency call numbers should be kept with the Sat phone or other method of communication as well as passed out to team members.
Field Research Accidents/Injuries
UAF understands when you are remote or out of sat phone range, it is difficult to report an accident/injury. Follow these guidelines for reporting.
Field Research Insurance
Be sure to determine insurance coverage prior to departure, particularly for Medivac requirements. Call EHSRM 474-6164 for questions.
