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)karelia.fi. The obser­vation is submitted to the Karelia UAS Safety Team, which handles all the safety obser­va­tions and takes the necessary measures.
