Learning environments at UVM often bring faculty, staff and students to a vast array of local, national and international locations for academic pursuits and research. These locations may include:
- farms & fields
The Department of Risk Management and Safety works in partnership with individuals and groups both on and off-campus to assess the risks in these types of settings so that work may be done using proper controls and best safety practices.
Farms, such as the UVM's Miller Complex, Horticulture Research Center, Proctor Maple Research Laboratory and the Morgan Horse Farm come with unique safety hazards unlike those in a typical wet lab situation. However, all of these locations fall under UVM's Laboratory Health & Safety Policy and must adhere to the guidelines and requirements of UVM's Laboratory Safety Program.
