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.
