Safety at LiU

The work with safety at Linköping University makes sure to create a safe and secure environment for students, employees and visitors on our campuses. LiU is working with prevention of unwanted incidents like fires, thefts, violence and threats. It is important to be prepared and to have clear routines if an incident would occur.

First Aid

First aid equipment for uncomplicated bandaging can be found all over campus. Contact an employee if you are in need of this equipment. LiU is constantly educating the employees in first aid and CPR. Look for office doors marked with “FH” and “HLR” badges to find trained employees. The campus guards can also help in case of emergency, they are trained in first aid and have access to defibrillators.

Crisis and Emergency Management

As a student you are entitled to support in case of a crisis. If you need emergency support, contact an employee that you have confidence in, the Student Health Care Center or University Chaplaincy. In a crisis or emergency of very serious character such as severe accidents, serious threats, natural disasters, fires, etc. LiU’s crisis management organization steps in.

Violence and threat

LiU does not accept any employee or student being exposed to violence or threats in the work environment. In case you are affected, directly or indirectly, you can get support and guidance from a course or program coordinator, director of studies, the study counselor for your program or:

You should always make a police report if you have been the victim of a violent and threatening situation and, in case of a trial, there is support to get from the University. Serious incidents are reported as an occupational injury to the Swedish Work Environment Authority, but also less serious incidents should be reported as an incident.

Incidents, accidents and occupational injury

It is important to quickly fix errors and deficiencies in the study environment, but also to take advantage of constructive suggestions on how LiU can improve. If you as a student sustain an incident or an accident, you should report the incident immediately. An incident refers to an unwanted, sudden incident that was about to cause an injury but favorable circumstances meant that it stopped at a reminder of the risks that exist.
