Everyone staying on GIH's premises must know which escape routes are available. Signs with escape routes are placed in corridors and stairwells. GIH must carry out evacuation drills at certain intervals.
Should an accident occur, for example, a fire, explosion, or gas leak, and the premises must be evacuated, this is signaled with an alarm signal.
In case of alarm:
- Leave the building immediately.
- Avoid smoke-filled corridors.
- Go immediately to the assembly area at Wembley, i.e., the pitch outside the sports entrance.
- Do not leave the assembly area until the evacuation leader announces that it is permitted.
- Do not stand in the car park, as the emergency services may need to use it to get there.
An emergency phone is located at the entrance to the building to the sports halls.
GIH is obliged to report all work-related injuries and incidents to the Work Environment Agency and the Social Insurance Agency. Serious injuries or accidents must be reported on the same day without delay.
Serious injury or incident
- Examples of severe damage include broken bones, heavy bleeding, and significant damage to nerves, muscles, or tendons.
- An example of a severe accident could be when an employee fell from a height of two to three meters but did not suffer any injuries. More serious cases of bullying, violation, or harassment are also examples of serious incidents.
Report an accident with a student
The responsible teacher (sub-course or course manager) must:
- Report all injuries in consultation with students and the principal safety representative. Serious injuries or accidents must be reported on the same day without delay. Based on the choice of work injury you make, the form goes to both the Work Environment Agency and the Social Insurance Agency, or only to one of these. Here you can report all damages External link, opens in new window..
- Write a claim with information about what has happened and when. It must be e-mailed to the Education and Research Administrative Department, UFA.
The student must:
- Report the accident or incident to the responsible teacher (sub-course/course manager).
- For possible compensation, the student must e-mail UFA to get help reporting the injury or incident to Kammarkollegiet. They have personal injury insurance for students. It is the Kammarkollegiet that decides whether compensation is paid.
Investigation of the causes of the events
The immediate manager of employees or responsible teacher for students must, in cooperation with the principal safety representative, investigate the causes of the incident and take measures to prevent further accidents, injuries, or incidents from occurring.
Examples of the investigation's content:
- What has happened? When, where, and how did it happen? Why?
- What measures could have prevented the incident? What actions need to be taken immediately?
The principal safety representative forwards the investigation to the Working Environment and Equal Treatment Group, the AML group, which is tasked with following up on injuries and incidents at GIH.
Guidelines for crisis management
GIH's guidelines for crisis management cover all employees and students at GIH and describe how to act in a crisis situation.
A crisis is more significant than what the business is ordinarily prepared for or able to handle. On a personal level, it could be, for example, a traffic accident, illness, or sudden death. A crisis can also affect a larger group or the entire organization, for instance, fire or sabotage.
