Guidelines for study trips to risk areas
In countries or regions where employees and students of Maastricht University (UM) conduct work or education-related activities as part of a work-related trip or study trip, it is possible that safety risks or calamities (such as terrorist attacks or natural disasters) may occur. In such instances, the country or region in question may be designated a risk area. As an employer and educational institution, UM has a responsibility of care towards its employees and students and is obligated to safeguard their safety, health and well-being. In the case of work-related trips and study trips to risk areas, however, UM is unable (at times) to guarantee the safety of its employees and students.
