Home / English homepage - Lapland UAS / Who we are / Safety


Everything at Lapland UAS starts from the well-being of students and personnel, the safety of work, the systematic progress of studies, and the fluency of RDI activities.

The work is guided by the instruction implementation plans, the ensured progress of RDI activities, and the fluency and accessibility of services. Multi-site work instructions outline the way in which work at the office and at home can be combined flexibly and communally without discrimination.

Safety training, information sessions, and exercises are arranged for personnel and students, enabling them to recognise threats and to prevent accidents. This also ensures that people have enough skills to act in a situation involving an accident or threat.

In the event of an emergency, we follow the general safety situation and authorities’ instructions.

Safety instructions on the campuses
