Ticks & Lyme Disease Guidance

This document aims to make people working on projects aware of situations where ticks may be a risk, how to reduce the risk of tick bites and what measures to take if you find a tick on your person, or find a tick bite. This could be used to support a biology or as preparation for a field trip.

Biosecurity – Background and good practice for site visits and site activities

Biosecurity is a term used for procedures or measures designed to protect people and the environment against harmful biological or biochemical substances. This guidance is for general use by all the people who work on a project and sets out simple good practice/ instructions. This helps identify and minimise risks therefore helping prevent the accidental transfer of pests, disease and non-native species. This helps people to stay safe while they are working on site, and to protect the environment from our activities. This could be used to support a biology or as preparation for a field trip
