The Universities Safety and Health Association (USHA) and the Universities and Colleges Employers Association (UCEA) published a guidance document in May 2011 for United Kingdom higher education institutions entitled Guidance on Health and Safety in Fieldwork; including off-site visits and travel in the UK and overseas

The guidance contains core actions and good practice and the format has followed the same as contained with the Institute of Directors Leadership Actions guidance. One of the aims of the guidance is to enable institutions to achieve conformity to the British Standards Institute BS8848 2007 standard entitled Specification for the provision of visits, fieldwork, expeditions, and adventurous activities, outside the United Kingdom.
