At Uppsala University, a systematic fire protection work is conducted. The fire protection work aims to protect people, property and the environment from fire. The protection and safety of people should always be prioritized.
The systematic fire protection work at Uppsala University entails, among other things, the fire protection organization, training, control rounds and action plans. Fire protection checks should be done four (4) times per year as part of the fire protection work. The checks are largely carried out by the University's Security and Safety Department.
A general fire protection training course for employees is arranged regularly. The course includes theory as well as hands-on practice. All employees should complete fire safety training at least every five years.
Each department shall have at least one designated fire protection officer, appointed by the Head of Department. The fire protection officer is responsible for the regular supervision of the fire protection within the department.
Within each campus area, the campus manager shall summon all fire-inspectors and chemical safety officers to an annual fire-prevention meeting.
