There are some actions that you must take when planning to travel to help ensure that you have a safe and productive trip. 

Please allow enough time to complete the necessary pre-travel planning steps.  Complex trips abroad, working in remote areas or involving high risk activities, may take a number of weeks or months to organise adequately.  These pre-planning activities should be initiated sufficiently in advance of the trip.

Ensure you have familiarised yourself with the Off Site Working Policy on Safety's website.
