How do we assure that off-site people are working safely?
How do off-site workers know the hazards they face?
What steps should they take in their work to ensure safety?
What safety lessons can we learn from our collaborators?
Collaborations broke into categories with widely differing issues
Large domestic collaborations
University scale domestic collaborations
Each group had distinct issues, although some similarities were seenOff-Site Research
