Safe­ty belongs to us all

The key words of safe­ty and secu­ri­ty work at Kare­lia Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sciences are plan­ning and pre­pa­ra­tion, and good coo­pe­ra­tion with all the mem­bers of the hig­her educa­tion com­mu­ni­ty. The basis for all acti­vi­ties is antici­pa­to­ry safe­ty work and con­ti­nuo­us deve­lop­ment of hig­her educa­tion safe­ty and secu­ri­ty as part of the eve­ry­day acti­vi­ties. Iden­ti­fica­tion of pos­sible risks, risk assess­ment, and risk mana­ge­ment form the basis for safe­ty and secu­ri­ty work, which means that safe­ty and secu­ri­ty risks rela­ted to our ope­ra­tions are asses­sed, proces­sed and moni­to­red regu­lar­ly.

Orga­ni­sa­tion of safe­ty and secu­ri­ty work

The Pre­si­dent of Kare­lia UAS and the Direc­tor of Admi­ni­stra­tion and Finance are res­pon­sible for safe­ty mana­ge­ment at the UAS. The Direc­tor of Admi­ni­stra­tion and Finance also works as the Safe­ty Mana­ger of Kare­lia UAS. In addi­tion, Kare­lia UAS has a desig­na­ted Safe­ty Team res­pon­sible for mana­ging UAS safe­ty and secu­ri­ty and for the pre­pa­ra­tions for pos­sible threats and cri­ses, and for the proce­du­res and mea­su­res requi­red for acu­te situa­tions, and for cri­sis com­mu­nica­tion.

Eve­ry one of us is res­pon­sible for a safe work and stu­dy envi­ron­ment

The safe­ty mea­su­res of Kare­lia UAS are meant for pro­tec­ting the staff, stu­dents, ser­vice pro­ducers, visi­tors and other people moving around on cam­pus pre­mi­ses.

Per­so­nal safe­ty is ensu­red by orga­ni­sing e.g. safe­ty and secu­ri­ty walks and les­sons, first aid cour­ses, ini­tial fire extin­guis­hing trai­ning, and exi­ting prac­tices, which are based on an annual trai­ning and orien­ta­tion plan. Both the staff, stu­dents and other people ope­ra­ting on cam­pus pre­mi­ses par­tici­pa­te in the­se trai­nings.

All people moving around on Kare­lia UAS cam­pus pre­mi­ses can report a safe­ty obser­va­tion. The obser­va­tions may concern the pre­mi­ses or the equip­ment, walkways insi­de or out­si­de cam­pus buil­dings, cour­ty­ards or par­king areas, or people moving around on the cam­pus, whet­her they are mem­bers of the UAS com­mu­ni­ty or out­si­ders. You can report the safe­ty obser­va­tion on Kare­lia UAS int­ra­net (staff, stu­dents) or by using a QR code, or by sen­ding email to turvallisuus(at) The obser­va­tion is sub­mit­ted to the Kare­lia UAS Safe­ty Team, which hand­les all the safe­ty obser­va­tions and takes the neces­sa­ry mea­su­res.
