Subject: Protocols / Requirements For Field Trips and Undergraduate
I have recently become chair of the Safety Committee for our School of 
Science and Technology at Salisbury University, a predominantly undergradua
te liberal arts university.  The School includes chemistry,biology, math, 
geography, physics,nursing , and health sciences.

The committee has been asked to come up with general policies (appropriate 
procedures and protocols related to safety and responsible supervision) 
for field trips and undergraduate research.

I am requesting information ( policies or references) from perhaps other 
similar type universities which might have written policies in place, so 
that we can start to formulate a broad policy for our school.  I invision 
a broad general policy for the total school, which might have to be 
expanded upon for individual needs of departments.

(Note:  I am personally interested in any policies realtive to safety 
training and supervision requirements for undergraduate research. 
Chemistry requires students to be trained and faculty advisors to be on 
the floor at all times when their undergraduates are working, but that is 
not the case in mnayt of the other science departments).

Thank you for any information relative to this requests.
