Résumé(disponible en anglais seulement)
Intrinsic to field work in the earth sciences are field safety practices that ultimately aim to preserve life, health, property and the environment. Field operations, transportation, equipment, instrumentation, wildlife, personnel, and physical settings are diverse, and there is no single standard solution for each field site. However, the approach of systematically identifying risks or task hazards potentially encountered during field work, and their mitigation measures which eliminate or reduce them, can be universally applied. This approach requires critical thinking that has no true substitute, but can be supported by practices and leadership within a culture of safety. Practices rely on feedback loops for continual renewal and improvement of key elements through experience, and as new situations emerge. For example, standards for minimum field safety requirements are defined based on operational experience and expertise in addition to the minimum legislated controls that vary by jurisdiction. Beyond satisfying regulated safety requirements, field-based scientific organizations can create practices that promote taking responsibility for their safety and that of others (e.g., joint field parties) that begin with forethought and discussion at all levels of organizational hierarchies (i.e., senior management, supervisors, occupational health and safety expertise, and field personnel). Processes to achieve required qualifications in training, plan emergency response procedures, delegate tasks, evaluate field party competencies, communicate field safety issues, deploy field equipment safely, report and assess deviations from safety planning, and re-assess prior risk management decisions for their current relevance, can be tailored according to specific risks and their mitigation in the task hazard analysis. Under supportive leadership, these practices stimulate a positive culture of safety with built-in feedback loops to improve safety performance and, ultimately, master problem-solving skills to increase collective and individual resilience to address both the foreseen and unexpected risks of field work.
Résumé(Résumé en langage clair et simple, non publié)
Document traitant de la nature du travail sur le terrain de nos jours, la sécurité étant l'un des aspects les plus importants de la planification et de l'exécution de ce type de travail. Il s'agit d'un examen général soulignant la culture moderne de la sécurité sur le terrain. C¿'tait une communication sollicitée pour la publication d'un manuel sur le travail sur le terrain dans le domaine de la géomorphologie. Elle fait partie de l'incidence sur la préparation de protocoles pour le programme GEM-1, dans le cadre du projet des minéraux indicateurs dans les trois territoires. Le présent document ne mentionne aucune question ou aucun événement particulier lié à la sécurité sur le terrain passé, présent ou futur , il s'adresse à un auditoire général, allant des étudiants aux professionnels, et traite de l'adoption d¿une culture de pratiques sûres lorsque l'on travaille sur le terrain.
