2017 UNBC Field Safety

The ALRF is proud to support the training of various students heading out for great experiences in research associated with UNBC.  UNBC’s Field Safety Committee has announced:

In preparation for upcoming field seasons, the Field Safety Committee is sponsoring a training session on April 28, 2017, for anyone planning to conduct wilderness-based field research. Pre-workshop materials will be provided to registered UNBC participants through UNBC’s Blackboard system. There will be a nominal fee of $20/participant for the session to facilitate the purchase of necessary supplies. All participants who pay the fee, and complete the pre-workshop materials and the field session will receive a certificate of completion. Additionally, your participation will be registered with the Risk & Safety Office to show you have completed this safety training. To register, please follow the instructions on the attached, fillable, PDF form (including chargeback coding, if applicable) and forward it to safety@unbc.ca.
